An uninvited guest & sibling strife
Generations – The Legacy Weekdays SABC1 (*191) 20:00 OCTOBER
Nandi tries to reunite her daughter Sphe and ex-hubby Jack as they come to terms with Fana’s coma, and Zitha realises that she’s in love with Smanga. Despite another fight, Mrekza moves back into the Diale home with his girlfriend Lucy, and Wandile gives up her search for love. Mr Carlson refuses to forgive Lesedi when she apologises for accusing him of raping her and he considers a lawsuit of his own, and the Mabaso family are told that Fana was murdered and that his shooting wasn’t accidental. Lucy apologises to Mrekza for the drama she caused, and Jack is accused of murdering his son Fana.
Tau is seething when he learns that his ex-fiancée Zitha is dating his nephewby-marriage Smanga, and Jack arrives at Fana’s funeral uninvited and causes unrest. Lesedi decides to investigate her sexual assault herself when the cops prove to be of no assistance, and Nandi tries to comfort Jack in his time of need. A police visit leaves Cosmo feeling uneasy, and Amy gets a lead in Lesedi’s case. Nandi’s boyfriend Mandla (Themba Nofemele) returns from his business trip and asks Nandi to move to Cape Town with him, and Zitha and Wandile get a new roommate named Grace (Siseko Velelo). A jealous Mazwi considers going back to his wife Sphe after discovering that his brother Smanga likes her, and Nandi settles into her new life in a new city.
Despite Smanga’s disapproval, Mazwi steps up and takes responsibility as a father to “his” daughter Rorisang, and Grace bribes a nurse to alter her tests result so that she can extend her stay with Zitha and Wandile. Smanga goes on a rampage and tears into Mazwi, blaming him for the chaos at their family marketing company Ezweni after Mazwi quit as CEO in July 2018. Undercover cop Pele uses his credentials to tamper with police evidence and change the outcome of an investigation, and Mazwi takes advantage of Sphe and kisses her. Lesedi feels like she’s been abandoned when her friend Lerato (Candice Modiselle) reveals that she’s moving, Uncle Kabisi is caught in the middle of Smanga and Mazwi’s newest fight, and Mazwi’s interest in their marriage leaves Sphe confused.
Zitha’s (inset) new love interest is just one more problem on a long list for the Mabaso family.
