Skeem Saam’s Mantuli favours Kwaito over her daughters Pretty and Sonti and viewers have been wondering why she mistreats her children. The TVSA July teasers reveal that Mantuli hasn’t dealt with her issues as a woman such as betraying her best friend and neighbour Meikie and will finally seek help from a therapist this season.
DOES MANTULI HATE PRETTY?
Viewers of the educational soapie Skeem Saam are judging Mantuli for throwing Pretty (Lerato Marabe) out of her house after learning that she got back together with Lehasa (Cedric Fourie) on Friday (1 July).
It seemed too drastic even for Mantuli (Dieketseng Mnisi) who herself has a colourful past…slept with her best friend’s (Meikie) husband John and even conceived a child (Kwaito) from the affair.
Is she judging Pretty because she hasn’t forgiven herself for what she did to Meikie and favouring Kwaito because she feels guilty?
The Monday 4 July reads:
“The news about Lehasa Maphosa has MaNtuli’s heart acting up again.”
The Monday 11 July and Tuesday 12 teasers reveals that her pride and pain won’t allow her to forgive and that her relationship with Meikie (Harriet Manamela) will be faced with a curvy road ahead.
Her son Kwaito (Clement Maosa) will seek help from Social Services on her behalf on Thursday, 21 July, and will not be thrilled to see that Mrs Kgomo is her therapist.
She will have to take accountability for her actions and will struggle to make peace with Meikie.
Friday 29 July
“MaNtuli struggles with the decision to reach out to Meikie and extend an olive branch.”
REACTIONS FROM ‘SKEEM SAAM’ VIEWERS
“Parents like MaNtuli exists in our black communities. Kwaito is her favourite son and never chased him out when had 2 ladies fighting over him. She’s trying very hard to prevent her history from repeating itself with her girl child. Kunzima.”
“Mantuli acting holier than thou forgetting she left KZN for love and also slept with her friend’s husband and got pregnant and lied to her husband for 20-something years.”
“MaNtuli had two confirmed affairs. One which bore a child. Kwaito cheated on two women. And was still supported. Hypocrites everywhere.”
