A father’s fury
Imbewu Weekdays e.tv (DStv *194/Openview HD *104) 21:30 OCTOBER
Ngcolosi and MaZulu reunite and settle their differences but there won’t be peace in the Bhengu house for long once Zethu reveals that Nganono was her babydaddy, and a furious Ngcolosi sets out to fire Nganono from Maluju Oil. Zethu reluctantly agrees to keep Nganono’s secret – until she realises that she can’t trust him or his family, and Celiwe keeps a close watch on Zethu. Pranav realises that he’s made a huge mess but he’s left Nerupa with a lot to forgive as he starts fixing his personal and professional lives.
Nganono admits to Phunyuka that he got Zethu pregnant, and Phunyuka and Ngcolosi find out about the abortion pills just before Zethu falls unconscious again. Phunyuka is haunted after he commits murder and hides the body, but he accidentally leaves clues that send him back to the scene of the crime to destroy the evidence and burn the corpse. MaZulu tells Phakade that Nganono has vanished, Phunyuka starts sending messages from his victim’s cellphone, and Maharaj blackmails Phunyuka into spying on Ngcolosi after he uncovers Phunyuka’s secret. Nerupa returns home and starts blogging, Pranav has Shria appointed COO, and Zakithi approaches Maharaj and Zithulele for help with taking ownership of Maluju. Zakithi demands her coming of age ceremony (umemelo) before discussing her suspicions about her family with Priscilla, and Futhi pretends to be Zakithi when she returns home. Priscilla confronts Phakade for his affair with MaZulu, and Zakithi uncovers her family’s secret. Elsewhere, Celiwe steals from the Bhengus after she falls victim to a loanshark.
There’s an uproar in the Bhengu family when Priscilla exposes Phakade and MaZulu’s affair, leading Ngcolosi to move out and swear revenge. Phakade is forced to flee his home after he is shunned by the community. Ngcolosi meanwhile disowns his children, kicks Zithulele and Zakithi out of Maluju Oil, attacks MaZulu and Phakade and tells MaNdlovu that she’s dead to him. MaZulu returns to the place she grew up and reunites with an old school friend as she sets off to find Nganono, and Phakade and Priscilla are forced to pretend that nothing is wrong to convince Jabulile to hand over her baby. An old flame of Priscilla’s arrives to help sort out the church dispute, and Maharaj takes over the seat of power from Ngcolosi as Maluju CEO.
The true paternity of the Bhengu siblings is revealed and sends their dad Ngcolosi into a rage.
