The Queen: A powerhouse duo is in town

Four seasons of The Queen came to a climax with the tragic death of favourite character Jerry Maake. We’ve come to expect plot twists, drama and suspense from this drama, and we are never disappointed.

The new season started this week and it’s nothing short of amazing as we are introduced to one of Mzansi’s favourite acting duos.

Bad cops on the rise

Renowned actors Rapulana Seiphemo and Kenneth Nkosi are the new additions to The Queen cast and, by the look of things, they are bringing more drama to our screens as a pair of notorious cops.

We’ve seen this duo together on several movies, including White Wedding, Tsotsi and Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema. Their onscreen chemistry always leaves a lasting impression on viewers.

Meet Colonel Hector Sebata

Portrayed by Rapulana Seiphemo, Hector is a man responsible for ordering a hit on Harriet, which ended up taking Jerry Maake’s life. He is the new colonel, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He may come across as an ethical policeman but he is, in fact, a drug supplier who is intent on converting the Tembisa police station into his own drug hub.

His introduction to drugs dates back to when he was still a constable. Hector started by helping drug dealers move their narcotics in his patrol car, and when he became a detective, he moved up to offering drug dealers protection.

But that wasn’t enough – the higher he ranked in his profession, the more power he craved in the drug world. Now as a colonel in charge of his station, he also wants to be in charge of his cocaine territory – the same territory that belongs to the Khoza family. We can already sense an intense rivalry between him and the Khozas. If they thought Jerry’s death meant freedom, they don’t know what’s coming their way.

Meet Detective Jaros Motale aka Jacarumba

Portrayed by Kenneth Nkosi, Jaros was born to poor parents and always believed the odds were stacked against him.

Hector got him his job as a cop and he’s been indebted to him ever since. Whatever Hector orders, he will execute without hesitation.

Jaros is Hector’s right-hand man. He was ordered by Hector to pull the trigger on Harriet and he made a big mistake by killing the wrong person, Jerry Maake. He is now assigned the case to investigate the people who killed Jerry, knowing very well that he’s the culprit.

It seems like Jaros is the type of man who can’t do anything right. It looks like he may be the weakest link in this duo. His mistakes may lead them to a lot more trouble than they anticipate.

Rapulana Seiphemo reunites with Connie Ferguson

The pair played husband and wife on Generations as Tau Mogale and Karabo Moroka. Viewers couldn’t help but feel all nostalgic as the two reunited again on screen.

The influx of new characters in the past couple of seasons shows that the Fergusons are serious about giving viewers nothing but the best in entertainment
