Someone give Emma a bells, please… Not because she’s defeated Lindiwe at her own game, but because she’s the first person who’s given Lindiwe a proper run for her money. Regardless of all the verbal warnings Beauty has given Emma concerning Lindiwe, somehow Emma has managed to overcome every obstacle thus far.
Lindiwe Doesn’t Buy Emma’s Career
Very few people are gifted with a sixth sense like Lindiwe’s. The Dikana matriarch can smell lies, manipulation and deceit from miles away. So, when Zolani kept flaunting Emma’s amazing career as a doctor in her face, she smelt the lies from the get-go. As Zolani and the Dikana family vouched for Emmarentia, Lindiwe refused to believe any of the nonsense.
Emma Saves Flora’s Life
Just when Lindiwe was defeated from her family’s obsession with Emma, Flora unwittingly gave her what she thought was a brilliant idea.
While fixing herself up her signature French soup, Flora suggested that the good madam doesn’t add any prawns to the dish because she is allergic to seafood. Poor Sis’Flora didn’t realise that her request was about to be used as a ploy to test Emma’s supposed proficiency in the medical field.
When Flora fell to the ground after consuming the prawns in the soup, Lindiwe was very quick to ask Emma to save Flora’s life, to which Emma did. However, Lindiwe still didn’t buy Emma’s story.
Lindiwe Plans Emma and Zolani’s Engagement Party
One Dikana family member who was particularly impressed with Emma was Zweli. Thanking Emma for her commendable work, he showed his appreciation by offering to plan Emma and Zolani’s engagement party. But in offering up this token of appreciation, he nominated his wife to do all the necessary arrangements, who was obviously less than pleased with the offer.
Although Lindiwe tried to worm her way out the planning, it soon became apparent that she had no choice but to plan the engagement party.

The Marriage Certificate Saga
Pushing as many of Lindiwe’s buttons as she could get to, Emma eventually pushed Lindiwe over the edge when she ordered that her mother-in-law create a slide show with all of the couple’s pictures. Doing as she was told, Lindiwe took centre stage when she played back the slideshow, including Emma’s marriage certificate from a previous marriage.
Unprepared for this stunt, Emma run out of the party venue in tears, leaving Zolani surprised and humiliated.
But Emma wasn’t going to give up on her plans for Zolani that easily. She concocted one hell of a story about the death of her husband who apparently cheated on her with her best friend.
Now, while Zolani tries to win Emma back, Lindiwe’s stunt has pushed Zolani further away.
