There are white lies that you tell your in-laws about why you aren’t going to make it to this month’s stuffy dinner party. Just a harmless fib to keep the peace. But then there are lies told to everyone in order to mislead them. Lies that turn you into a liar or even a psychopath. Is Maru a psychopath?
Seriously, was Maru possessed or being insensitive? ☹ #GreedAndDesire— MistressFapiyana (@nollyodbanks) April 13, 2016
The first ever victim of Maru’s lies – and probably the most hard hit - has to be Morakile. After roping his squeeze, Tselane, in on lying on the poor guy, Maru has now taken to threatening him at every turn. Warning Morakile to keep his mouth shut, or else!

That hit home... #GreedAndDesire
But isn’t he also lying to Tselane? He’s promised her everything under the sun, from love to a reward for keeping his secret. And while she holds on to that he tends to her money-grubbing exploits by furnishing her with gifts and doe in the pocket. The question to ask however is will he give the things the that money can’t buy?
Then there is Rakgadi Thakane, and boy is he playing her. Or at least that’s what he thinks. On a self-serving mission to lead the Makhetha empire, Maru is so sure that all it takes is pressing all the right buttons with Rakgadi and she’ll put in a good word for him with the family run board. But he forgets that Thakane wasn’t born yesterday. But could she be onto his lies?
Nobody who preferred an easy ride ever made it to the top. Maru is certainly putting in the dirty work and wearing as many faces as he can to get what he wants. But could he be lying to himself about a couple of things?
I hope Maru's going crazy. #GreedAndDesire— Fleekiswa (@NanaisTHEname) April 13, 2016
