In an unexpected turn of events, Walter tricks Lindiwe into believing that he is going to accept her R5 million bribe and put an end to the strike. At a press conference held at the mine, Walter takes to the podium to expose Lindiwe's dodgy business ways. After spending the night in prison, Lindiwe returns home and tells her family Walter left her with no choice but to give him R5 million. Hearing none of it, Zweli orders her to fix the mess she's created. The strike turns violent, and Tumi saves the Lindiwe as she restores calm.
