uThando Nes'thembu may be many things; dramatic, tense, family-focused and inspriing in some instances but one thing it is not and especially in this season is fake. You can always expect to see some real, difficult and honest conversation on every episode.
Last night was no different as Mseleku took his wives to see the Chief to help him explain to them how he plans to take care of the households that do not have male children. According to Mseleku and the Chief, each household must have a male child to ensure that home never dies out. So those sister-wives with male children would essentially share their male children with the other holds to ensure generational continuity.
It is not clear yet how Mseleku wants this to look like but just the discussion alone left MaCele in tears and MaKhumalo questionning her sister-wife's reaction.
One household which was highlighted during the conversation is that of MaKhumalo who does not yet have children. Mzansi Magic viewers rallied behind their fav MaKhumalo and wishing that she may pne day have children of her own so she may stop having to be the centre of these painful and difficult discussions.
The plot thicken as Mseleku has told MaCele in a previous episode that he is dating a girl with the surname Khumalo in the hopes of marrying her so he can grow MaKhumalo's household. MaCele had lunch with MaKhumalo in what seemed to be an effort to warn her of this but fell short of saying the words.
Will there be a fifth wife from another Khumalo family? Will MaCele and Mayeni agree to share their sons? Stay tuned to #uThandoNesthembu every Monday to Friday to find out.
