It’s been a year since Siphiwe Khumalo confessed to Thandeka (MaHadebe) that he planned to marry another woman.
Understandably, MaHadebe did not take the news well. The situation worsened when MaHadebe saw how disrespectful the other woman, Zandile, was towards her when they first met.
At the end of Mnakwethu Season 1, a reunion was held with all the men and women who found themselves in this polygamous situation.
MaHadebe and Zandile were in attendance but Siphiwe was nowhere to be found.
At the reunion, Zandile continued to be disrespectful to Thandeka.
Not only did she flash her engagement ring at MaHadebe but she also gloated about being pregnant with Siphiwe’s child. She then proceeded to call Thandeka old.
MaHadebe felt humiliated and warned Zandile that what she has done to her will come back to haunt her in the future. And, boy, was she right!
Go and apologise
In this new season, we learn that Zandile has since lost the baby and broken her engagement to Siphiwe. In the midst of that, she was also brutally attacked on social media by trolls.
That entire experience broke her mentally and spiritually.
Zandile was then advised to visit MaHadebe and apologise for breaking up her marriage and for gloating amid MaHadebe’s pain.
Please forgive me
At first, Zandile doesn’t see the need to apologise but she soon comes to her senses and visits MaHadebe at her home.
MaHadebe is surprised to see Zandile at her doorstep. She eventually lets her in to hear what she has to say.
“I wanted to talk to you with regards to messing with what’s yours,” says Zandile.
MaHadebe asks about the engagement ring and the baby with a smirk on her face.
Zandile admits that both are gone.
MaHadebe explains that she knew something bad would happen.
MaHadebe has a strong spiritual connection with her ancestors. Now, to finalise the apology, Zandile and Siphiwe have to do a cleansing ceremony for MaHadebe to appease her ancestors.
Zandile agrees to do so alongside Siphiwe, who is also going through a rough time. Siphiwe and MaHadebe have since separated.
