The lost Khoza cause

Kag­iso is des­per­ate to get even with gang­ster Di­a­mond for ru­in­ing his chances at be­ing a lov­ing hus­band and fa­ther.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - THE QUEEN -

If there’s one thing that good- guy Kag­iso’s (Loy­iso MacDon­ald) learnt to ac­cept, it’s that fall­ing in love just isn’t meant for him. He’s sulk­ing around the house with a bro­ken heart on Wed­nes­day 5 De­cem­ber af­ter his de­ceit­ful ex- girl­friend Kam­ina (Michelle Mos­alakae) left him at the al­tar in lateNovem­ber at their shot-gun wed­ding be­fore iron­i­cally be­ing shot dead her­self. “He is dev­as­tated,” says Loy­iso. “He’s up­set that he didn’t lis­ten when his med­dling mother Har­riet (Con­nie Fer­gu­son) warned him not to trust Kam­ina, who was se­cretly work­ing with their en­emy

Di­a­mond (Zolisa Xaluva) to de­stroy the Khozas from the in­side,” ex­plains the ac­tor. “Kag­iso might act all tough but he is a sen­si­tive guy. He is an emo­tional wreck but he is out to set­tle scores with Di­a­mond for ru­in­ing his life,” adds Loy­iso.

What was his re­ac­tion when Har­riet re­vealed Kam­ina’s se­cret plot­ting with

Di­a­mond at his wed­ding? He was equally dis­ap­pointed as he was ashamed. He’s al­ways wanted to have a fam­ily of his own and in a split sec­ond, that fell

apart. Kag­iso is an­gered by Kam­ina’s be­trayal and his own naivety. Kag­iso dis­cov­ered that Kam­ina lied about their son Jean-Pierre’s (Ja­son Ibi­ayo) pa­ter­nity. What was his re­ac­tion when the lit­tle boy was taken away from him

too? That hap­pened fast. While he was reel­ing from the rev­e­la­tions of Kam­ina’s de­cep­tion, he found out that JP wasn’t his bi­o­log­i­cal son. It was the last pos­i­tive thing he could hold onto and to have that taken away is hard on Kag­iso – he’s left with noth­ing!

That must af­fect him deeply? Of course. Kag­iso com­pletely with­draws from his fam­ily and the world around him. He isn’t bounc­ing back as he nor­mally would from a trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence, like af­ter his fa­ther Mzi ( Trea­sure Tsha­bal­ala) was mur­dered in 2016. Kag­iso uses al­co­hol as an emo­tional seda­tive be­cause he doesn’t know how to cope with los­ing both Kam­ina and JP. Does he have a plan to get back on his feet? He wants to kill Di­a­mond with his bare hands. Kag­iso be­lieves that get­ting rid of Di­a­mond will help him sleep bet­ter at night. He is driven by anger, which can of­ten lead to self- de­struc­tion, but killing Di­a­mond is his mis­sion.
