Flabbergasted and downright disgusted! These words describe how we felt watching this week’s episode of Uyajola 99.
Jub Jub introduced Mzansi to Nomthandazo from the Free State. Nomthandazo requested Jub Jub’s assistance because she was sure that her boyfriend (Thapelo) was being unfaithful.
What would lead her to think that? Well, Nomthandazo is not happy about their visiting arrangements. While Thapelo can visit his girlfriend as he pleases, she, unfortunately, can’t do the same. This makes Nomthandazo unsettled and she’d like Jub Jub to get to the bottom of this.
You are busted!
Without wasting any time, Jub Jub figures out where Thapelo lives. He and the Uyajola 99 crew drive straight to his house. And, surprise surprise, the man is found in his yard chatting to his wife.
Yes, Thapelo “the boyfriend” has a wife.
Unable to register what is happening around him, a puzzled Thapelo asks Nomthandazo why she’s at his house.
Infuriated by the cameras in his face and all the attention surrounding him, Thapelo exclaims, “You’ve brought cameras here? You’re disrespectful!”
Meanwhile, Thapelo’s wife looks shocked at what is transpiring in front of her. The poor lady was so peaceful about the situation, she won the sympathy of many on Twitter.
Thapelo’s true colours show
Visibly upset that he’s caught, Thapelo begins to show his true colours.
After refusing to go into the house to discuss the matter at hand, Thapelo eventually lets the Uyajola 99 crew, his wife and Nomthandazo in so they can talk about the situation.
Nomthandazo tells Jub Jub and the wife that she never knew that her cheating boyfriend was married. Thapelo then starts shouting that Nomthandazo is nothing but a side chick and that he doesn’t care about her.
At some point during the harsh exchange of words, Thapelo mentions that he would never marry a woman who drinks and smokes like Nomthandazo.
Thapelo’s comment disgusts viewers, who have now officially written him off as a disrespectful man with no morals.
Thapelo then continues to tell Nomthandazo that she is nothing but a side chick and that she and the crew must get the f**k out of his house.
At this point, Nomthandazo is in tears and inconsolable.
Thapelo’s sister arrives
While the commotion inside the house continues, Thapelo’s sister Sonto appears on camera.
Sonto tries to calm down her brother but fails. Confused about the commotion, Sonto then attempts to ask Thapelo if he is cheating on his wife. Thapelo brushes her off and continues to tell everyone to get out of his house.
His wife still stands there in disbelief. The only thing she utters throughout the entire show is, “I’m confused and scared.”
This episode was difficult to watch. We can only hope that Nomthandazo finds the strength to move on and that Thapelo’s wife realises that she deserves much better.
