The biggest moments on The Queen S3
The Queen S4 is here! Recap on the most jaw-dropping moments of the previous season of this dramatic telenovela.
Watching The Queen is nothing if not a rollercoaster of emotions. Between Petronella and her jokes, Shaka and Brutus’s entertaining conversations, and Jerry “Robocop” Maake’s interesting character, plus all the serious drama going on, we can see the team behind the show have pulled out all the stops to make sure we’re totally hooked.
As the fourth season hits our screens, we take a look back at the most exciting, riveting moments of Season 3.
Shaka cheats on Mmabatho
When Shaka and Mmabatho first fell for each other, we thought their relationship would have one of those fairy tale endings; he was the bad guy with an ugly past, while she was the perfect virginal church girl. This would be one of those “opposites attract” situations that would have a happy ending. Or so we thought!
Although he tried to be loyal to his wife, Shaka really struggled and found himself cheating on her while she was heavily pregnant. You won’t believe his explanation for cheating…
Shaka compares Onica and Mmabatho…seems like he is conflicted. Are his reasons for cheating valid?#TheQueenMzansi

It’s one thing to cheat on your partner, but blaming your infidelity on them? Now that’s a whole new level of low. That really was a big scandal and it created major trust issues, and they’re still recovering from this.

The Khozas lose everything
When you think of Harriet Khoza, you can’t help but picture one of the most powerful women on television. Since the show premiered a few years ago, Harriet and her family have been known as those people you don’t ever want to mess with. They’re strong, powerful, rich and famous for running a successful drug empire. All seemed perfect until things fell apart this year.
Although Harriet had made her intentions clear about quitting the drug business after several children lost their lives due to drugs, her family wasn’t keen on the idea. They should have listened to her because it would have saved them from a lot of the drama they faced a few weeks after that conversation. To cut a long story short, Jerry, who’s always wanted to see the family behind bars, finally got a breakthrough after arresting them with drugs at King Shaka International Airport in Durban.

Everybody ended up in prison, but because Harriet always has to stay on top of her game, she came up with a plan to get herself and her children out of jail. However, her plan meant that she would have to turn against Brutus and Shaka and leave them behind bars. Although she and her children got out, life became miserable for them and they lost business, their staff members and a lot of money. They also lost their home and had to live at the depot.
Kurough! Do you think the Khozas will get back on their feet? #TheQueenMzansi

Jerry diagnosed with cancer
While Jerry and Vuyiswa thought they’d live happily after getting married, life had other plans. The lovebirds, who were set on starting a family, had already been trying to have a child when they were met with unexpected news. No one could have prepared Jerry for that moment when he was told that he has advanced stage prostate cancer.
Oh no! Such terrible news for Jerry, bafethu! How’s the family going to take the news? #TheQueenMzansi

Jerry couldn’t believe the news because everything seemed fine, except the fact that he and Vuyiswa were struggling to conceive. This is what led to the tests. After finding out about his life-threatening illness, Jerry tried his best to hide it from his wife and he was taking his anger out on his colleagues. To make things worse, Vuyiswa found out about the cancer from Sthembiso. Although she was angry that he didn’t tell her about it, she eventually became his biggest support system.
He needed all the support he could get because things quickly went from bad to worse and before he knew it, Jerry needed surgery and chemo. The last episode of the season ended with him lying on a bed after surgery and it was easy to tell that he didn’t survive the procedure. That was one of the most emotional days we’ve seen on the telenovela.
This is a lot 😭😭😭 #TheQueenMzansi
