After Mantoa sees Mandlakhe, she is not herself. Gagashe calls Nkanyamba for help regarding Mantoa's situation. He says that for Mantoa to be ok, Mantoa must spend the night with Mandlakhe as thanks for sparing her life. Nkanyamba warns Gagashe that Madlakhe is livid, so he must appease him, and his apologies are no longer accepted; rather, action is required. Gagashe sends Mantoa away and brings another woman for Mandlakhe in Mantoa's place.
