Ten­damudz­ima (Nat Ram­ab­u­lana) has a bone to pick with Thathe leader Chief Azwin­dini (Gabriel Te­mudzani) and it’s not about a busi­ness deal. “There are un­re­solved is­sues be­tween them,” says Nat. “Years ago when Ten­damudz­ima was study­ing, he had a girl­friend but Azwin­dini also had his eye on her. She broke things of with Tenda in favour of the chief.” Ten­damudz­ima’s dis­like for Azwin­dini has been sim­mer­ing ever since, but the strain of do­ing busi­ness with Thathe’s chief is about to boil over and Tenda starts the #ChiefMustFall protest on Fri­day 16 Fe­bru­ary. But it doesn’t got go as planned, ex­plains Gabriel. “This young man is out to de­stroy the chief. He ral­lies the vil­lage to bring Azwin­dini down, but there is an out­come that he couldn’t ex­pect.”

BIG PROB­LEMS

Tenda’s wife Livhuwani (An­zani Tshiv­hase) is friends with Chief Azwin­dini and she’s clue­less that her hus­band is be­hind the cam­paign to de­throne the royal. But that changes on Mon­day 19 Fe­bru­ary when she learns the truth af­ter she over­hears peo­ple in town. “Livhu feels like she has been stabbed in the back by the man she loves. She has no idea why her friend is be­ing tar­geted,” con­fesses An­zani. Fric­tion builds be­tween the hus­band and wife and they are barely say­ing two words to each other by Wed­nes­day 21 Fe­bru­ary. “Tenda re­ally thought that his wife would sup­port him, but it turns out not to be the case. She is dis­ap­pointed in him and he is un­sure how to make amends with her. This just adds to the pres­sure they have put on them­selves to start a fam­ily, be­cause they aren’t hav­ing suc­cess there ei­ther,” ex­plains Nat.

THE LOVE CHIEF

Feel­ing be­trayed, Livhuwani turns to the last per­son Tenda would’ve hoped. “Azwin­dini is the only man she trusts. She would rather spend time with him than with her hus­band,” says An­zani. The chief gives her a shoul­der to cry on on Thurs­day 22 Fe­bru­ary and the sit­u­a­tion takes a more per­sonal turn on Mon­day 26 Fe­bru­ary – we’ve been sworn to se­crecy about what goes on. “Livhu isn’t sure if this is ro­man­tic,” laughs the ac­tress. “Azwin­dini is a well-known Casanova, so any­thing is pos­si­ble.” Al­though Nat warns: “Tenda is ready to fight tooth and nail for his wife. The chief won’t beat him again!”
