No matter how many times one tries to hide the truth, it always has a way of coming out. Especially when it comes Sibongile and Joyce’s situation surrounding their daughter, Ntokozo.
Mzali Wami is an authentic story that deals with the important issue of human trafficking, which tragically takes place in our own country in real life. Let’s take a look at what went down this week
Joyce and Sibongile meet once again
Sibongile and Godfrey go to Johannesburg to find their missing daughter after countless unanswered calls. Their search leads them to Joyce’s doorstep. When they get to her place, Joyce nearly has a heart attack as she quickly recognises Sibongile as the woman who stole Ntokozo from her 20 years ago.
Moments after Sibongile leaves, something tells Joyce that she’s seen that woman before and in that same moment, she remembers everything.
Joyce goes to Lucia’s apartment, where Sibongile and her husband stay, and confronts her about Ntokozo.
However, Sibongile soon connects the dots and realises that Joyce sold Ntokozo. The two eventually agree that they have no choice but to team up to save Ntokozo.
A mother’s sacrifice has no limits
Joyce has a long and thorough think about the plan and decides to devise a new one that will allow her to find her daughter and, in the end, expose Sibongile for what she has done.
She goes undercover and finds a way to sneak into the abandoned house where the kidnapped girls are kept. Joyce manages to call Sibongile and sends her the location. Sibongile informs the cops, who accompany her in the hopes of saving the girls in time.
Terror and his gang arrested
While Terror and his gang attempt to move the girls from one location to another, the cops arrive and a car chase ensues. When Terror realises that he’s trapped with nowhere to go, he steps out of the vehicle and is arrested, along with his gang.
Human trafficking awareness
There’s no doubt the show is addressing the serious issue around human trafficking and the nightmare women and children face because of this hideous crime.
Mzali Wami has done an amazing job in creating awareness about this issue and, although we’re still far off from the end of the season, Mzali Wami is already a hit with Mzansi viewers.
After Joyce went to all the extremes to save her biological daughter, will Sibongile uphold her side of the deal and tell the truth about stealing Ntokozo those many years ago?
