The Road: Bambatha’s X files

20 November 2015
It’s all about timing, well for Salome that is. When Silas was just about drowning in a media maelstrom, following the sudden murder of Zwelakhe, she swooped in as the PR superwoman who would spin him out of trouble. She then broke down Godfrey’s walls as email spy @DeepThroat.

Now it seems we’re closer to who the power-dressing PR guru of Bambatha truly is; a baklava-wearing, bespectacled secret agent of sorts. But that’s still leaves us perplexed.

How does she fit into the story? Who is she really? Is Bambatha part of a larger scandal that we don’t know about?

Just add Salome to the mix

Someone who’s also been thrust and embroiled in the muck is Zakes. Unlike Salome, who’s in control, his life has spiraled out of controlled because of Bambatha’s underworld. He’s gone from the new wide-eyed, wet-behind-the-ears boss to pulling the trigger that ended Fickson Katanaga.

But does Fixo’s death mean Bambatha’s out of the red? Or that Silas is home free? Not if Salome has any part to play in it. She seems to have all the dirt on Silas, Zwelakhe and the blood diamond smuggling cartel.

A girl with a plan

Will she enlist Zakes in her undercover mission and does love have anything to do with it?
