House of Zwide: Faith called her then-lover Isaac (Jeffrey Zekele) to cover the death.

There’s always commotion in the Zwide mansion. It’s no different this fortnight when family matriarch MaZwide (Nandi Nyembe) visits the lavish Johannesburg home shortly after her heart surgery.

Rather than resting and concentrating on recovery as her doctor instructed, the elderly woman sets her sights on digging into her daughter-in-law Faith’s (Winnie Ntshaba) dark past. MaZwide unearths a deadly secret, prompting Faith to take drastic measures to keep her cover.

MaZwide’s sleuthing starts when she crosses paths with fashion intern Ona (Nefisa Mkhabela). The two hit it off and MaZwide suspects that their connection isn’t a coincidence.

MaZwide thinks that Ona is her granddaughter who supposedly died in a fire 20 years ago. According to MaZwide, Ona not only looks like a Zwide, she talks like one and she even behaves like her fashion mogul son Funani (Vusi Kunene). That must mean one thing: Ona is a Zwide.

While it’s a reach for MaZwide to assume that she’s related to a stranger based off looks and personality, Winnie points out that MaZwide couldn’t be closer to the truth. This dates to two decades ago when Faith accidentally killed Funani’s wife Busi offscreen.

In a panic, Faith called her then-lover Isaac (Jeffrey Zekele) to cover the death. He promised to torch the house and everything in it, but he only completed half of the mission as Isaac saved Ona and raised her.

With MaZwide asking around and looking into Ona’s history, Faith’s alarm bells go off ringing. Faith is left with no other option than to send MaZwide packing so that she stays as far away from Ona as possible.

But will she succeed?
