Good guys finish last. Sometimes. Was this the fraught lesson that Morakile and Tokelo were meant to learn? In a world that seems to be ruled by Maru and his bullies, was it inevitable that these two downtrodden blokes start pulling strings of their own? After all, if nothing is ventured then nothing is gained.

For all those routing for Morakile, here’s a bit of some good news: The guy finally shed his Good-Samaritan look for some tough skin!


 




A refuge seeking asylum from his corrupt-killer brother Maru and his blood-thirsty hangman, Kenny, Morakile staggered to a safe haven after being abducted and shot by the cops. As fate would have it, he stumbled onto the door of a Nqobile, who was really Nthatisi, Bonngoe’s illegitimate daughter.

The very daughter who was to become his successor, instead of wayward son, Maru.

But was it fate that led him to her? Was it luck that enabled him to escape Kenny’s recapture? It appeared more and more that Morakile was being protected by a guardian angel.

 

 




Tokelo was also in need of a guardian angel of his own. Not only was money too tight to mention, his brokenness was becoming something of a repellant for Mapule. How could he let her take care of both he and the child while he hung about penniless with Foloko all day long?



But is Foloko’s get-rich-quick-fix going help or hurt Tokelo, and most of all Mapule?
