Thembeka is adamant that she is innocent in the case of the murder of Vuyo Mabutya (Zizi Penteni) and will do anything to prove it. Themebeka’s trickery to deceive all those around her has always been her greatest asset and she has always managed to stay on the right side of the law because of it. The evidence keeps piling up against her though, and she is arrested by Lerumo at NFH in front of her husband, Quinton and all her colleagues.
Thembeka’s lawyer, Arrod, is confident that they will win the case, but the state has a secret weapon up their sleeve in the form of Audrey. Audrey’s evidence is substantial and could be the downfall of Thembeka.
Will Thembeka be found guilty? Find out on Scandal! every weekday at 7:30PM on e.tv and eHD on OpenView HD (Channel 104) and DStv (Channel 194).

The award-winning Thami aka Mongo directs the isiXhosa production of Amathaf’Entandabuzo, based on the book by Fikiswa P Magqashela, presented by the Baxter Theatre Centre, for a short season from 4 to 14 May.
Performed in isiXhosa with English surtitles Amathaf’Entandabuzo is loosely translated into Valley of Doubt, beautifully written, while dealing with complex universal themes of love. Amathafa means fields or valleys – a metaphor for love – and just like nature, there is nothing simple about it and we rarely ever know where it will lead to. Love has the ability to take one to heights of ecstasy or leave one in a state of despair, as it tries to find a way out of a valley of doubts. The story is layered with the intricacies of love and life, charged with passion and intrigue – betrayal, abuse and violence collide in a world where love is tested and proves its resilience.
