When death happens, it’s like a rug is pulled under our feet. We topple over in crisis and all the dirt swept underneath is left to pollute the air. A fateful moment was the thing that brought the Makhetha’s to this point.
Fed up with his son’s behaviour – although Maru was never quite encouraged – Bonngoe couldn’t wait to shatter Maru’s hopes and tell him that he had a daughter and that she was going be the Makhetha heir, instead of him.
As a young man Bonngoe met and fell in love with a Zulu girl called Sibahle. But when she fell pregnant, he couldn’t commit and was obliged by his family to shun her and disavow his own daughter.
Rejected and abandoned, Sibahle would never forgive Bonngoe for denying her. So she carried on, never once telling their daughter, Nqobile, that he was her father. Having snubbed them though Bonngoe never stopped loving his daughter and found a way to be a part of her life.
The truth always has a way of coming out. Not only did Morakile find his way to Nqobile but it seemed Bonngoe was sending all sorts of messages from the grave, pushing Sibahle to come out with it. The time had come.
