When Ndoni discovers the broken platoon bracelet in Khaya’s office, she’s sure she has the evidence to reopen her father’s case. But Madlopa suggests that the bracelet might belong to Khehlani, another member from her father’s platoon. He warns Ndoni not to jump to conclusions and to be cautious—this could be a lot bigger and more dangerous than she thinks.

Khaya’s political scheming

Following the explosive dinner in which the General and the VP declared themselves enemies, the General informs Khaya that he’s set on running for election against Enoch. He’ll use whatever dirty tricks he can, including exposing the truth behind a water scandal that led to a deadly cholera outbreak. Khaya is caught in a tight spot between the two powerful men. With Thobani’s help, he manipulates the General into staying quiet about the water scandal, while simultaneously giving Enoch ammunition to take down his opponent.
