Keep­ing

Tladi and Ashanti are in a fa­therly tail­spin af­ter a con­fes­sion.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - IN THIS ISSUE -

Keep­ing Score view­ers have al­ways been privy to ASA gym man­ager Mmamosa’s (So­nia Mbele) se­cret: that her son Tladi (Solomon Se­bothma) is the son of her one-time true love Jus­tice (Saint Se­seli). Jus­tice ditched Mmamosa as a preg­nant teen and doesn’t recog­nise her from al­most 20 years ear­lier. But that DNA se­cret is about to be re­vealed, whether or not Mmamosa is ready. On Mon­day 18 Septem­ber, Jus­tice’s daugh­ter Botho (Moliehli Makobane) blurts out the truth in a fit of rage, hav­ing learnt it from Mmamosa her­self in Au­gust dur­ing a booze-fu­elled con­fes­sion ses­sion. And that’s not all: while read­ing her late mom’s diaries, Botho learnt that Ashanti (Shal­ima Mkongo) isn’t her sis­ter!

OLD WOUNDS OPENED

“Tladi is shocked by this life-al­ter­ing news. He con­fronts his mother and at the back of his mind, he’s hop­ing that what Botho has said is just a lie,” ex­plains Moliehli. “He is think­ing that Botho is say­ing this be­cause she has in­se­cu­ri­ties about Tladi and Ashanti’s re­la­tion­ship.” Botho and Tladi bonded dur­ing his trial when he was falsely ac­cused of rape and Botho fell in love with him, un­aware that his heart be­longed to Ashanti. It’s not good news for Tladi – Mmamosa not only con­firms that Jus­tice is his fa­ther, she shows no re­morse for hid­ing this. “It’s dis­gust­ing,” says Moliehli. “This truth is the last thing he wanted.”

NEW TRUTHS DIS­COV­ERED

Botho con­tin­ues her de­struc­tive path on Mon­day 18 Septem­ber and drops a bomb on her “sis­ter”. “Botho tells Ashanti that Jus­tice isn’t her fa­ther and she is ter­ri­bly up­set,” ex­plains Moliehli. “Ashanti’s life is a lie and she can’t turn to Jus­tice now – she doesn’t trust him.” In­stead, Ashanti con­fides in paral­ysed ath­lete Le­bona (Mothusi Magano). “She tells him that she needs a dis­trac­tion while pro­cess­ing this in­for­ma­tion, so he kisses her,” re­veals the ac­tress. But there is just one prob­lem with Ashanti hook­ing up with Le­bona… and it’s one that isn’t go­ing to go away in a hurry: she’s still en­gaged to Tladi!
