Cousin trou­ble

MaNg­cobo’s cousin Diniwe is in town to cash in on some dan­ger­ous se­crets.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - UZALO -

Uzalo view­ers will be a lot more thrilled to see Phindile Gwala (Mu­vhango’s for­mer Nonny, 2012-2017) in KwaMashu than MaNg­cobo (Dawn Than­deka King) . While we recog­nise a much-loved face, MaNg­cobo just sees a men­ace. Her cousin Diniwe knows far too much about all those skele­tons in MaNg­cobo’s closet and she’s here to rat­tle some bones. “She knows her cousin’s dirty laun­dry that might compromise her mar­riage to

Nkunzi (Ma­soja Msiza),” says Phindile. “Her ar­rival on Thurs­day 15 Novem­ber isn’t quite a happy mo­ment! MaNg­cobo and her hus­band dis­like her, but Diniwe could care less about that – and for good rea­son.”


This cousin isn’t here to flip through their fam­ily photo al­bums with a cup of tea. “Diniwe is not driven by her feel­ings. What mat­ters to her most is money [her best in­ter­est], so she’s not much af­fected by the way that MaNg­cobo looks or treats her – she al­ready knows what she’s up against,” re­veals Phindile. “Diniwe doesn’t re­ally get along with some of her fam­ily mem­bers in­clud­ing her twin sis­ter Lady Die (played by Khanyi Mbau) and MaNg­cobo. To her, it’s all about ‘how am I go­ing to ben­e­fit from this or that?’ It’s a mind­set that will trig­ger dishar­mony within Nkunzi’s mar­ried life with MaNg­cobo.” This kooky-look­ing cousin is here for one rea­son and one rea­son only: to turn a juicy se­cret into cash money. “She knows a se­cret about MaNg­cobo’s money af­fair and that is her se­cret weapon, for now,” hints Phindile. “Diniwe is the type that al­ways gets what she wants. One of her best strate­gies is threat.” It doesn’t take her long to start tight­en­ing the screws – she’ll send Manc­gobo into a flat spin on Mon­day 19 Novem­ber.

Diniwe (left) is full of laughs now, but she means busi­ness and it’s go­ing to cost MaNg­cobo dearly. Ac­tress Phindile’s Mu­vhango char­ac­ter was more sub­dued.
