The Herd: Will Ayanda give up her humanity to become a witch?

We’re always in for a shock every time we watch The Herd. If you thought the last few episodes were lit, then you clearly haven’t watched the latest edition of the Mzansi Magic drama series. We’re not exaggerating when we say it’s getting heated.

Muzi is having a tough time believing that Smanga is his real father. After his mother broke the news, he is struggling to live with the fact that his mother cheated on his late father. When he confronted her about the news, she stuck to her story.

MaMngadi apologised to her son and told him that what she did was meant to protect him. She said she’d always wanted to tell him the truth but chose to keep it from him because that was the safest thing to do.

As evil as MaMngadi is, she really does care about her children. And because she wants to make sure that they’re protected, she turned to her mother, who is a powerful witch, for help. MaMngadi asked her mother to kill Smanga but she told her that the only way she’d kill him was if she brought her a heart.

This witchcraft thing is really hard, and it comes with a lot of dirty demands. We doubt that MaMngadi will stay clean forever. We think it’s only a matter of time before she goes back to being a witch.

Ayanda finally gets the heart

It’s happened – Ayanda has killed someone in the name of love. She seduced a man at the bar and pretended she was into him. He fell for the act and she insisted that they drive to his house.

He obliged, of course, but things didn’t end well. On their way, he made a quick stop and while he was busy outside the car, she ran him over. She then stabbed him multiple times and took his heart to the witches.

But she still needs to complete one more step in order to become a witch. She was told that she needs to give up her humanity because it’s making her weak. Will she go ahead with it?

Dingane’s insecurities get the better of him

You’d think Dingane would be happy about the fact that he has a job. However, after finding out that his woman was the one who got the job for him, he quickly lost his mind. He’s basically feeling embarrassed about the whole thing, and to him, it looks like he can’t take care of himself.

He told Dumazile that the fact that she got him a job is humiliating and strips him off his dignity. It’s obvious that his outburst had less to do with Dumazile and more to do with his own insecurities.

After watching this episode we’re left with so many questions. Showmax gets weekly episodes of The Herd express from Mzansi Magic, so this is the place to be to find out how these issues will resolve themselves – or will they?
