New Isidingo family on the horizon

Watch out Charker, there's new KAPOW'er on the scene.

Isidingo has announced that on Tuesday, 14 June a new family will move into the soapie:

The Sibekos.

Who are they?

This from the show:

Meet the Sibekos - the powerful and charismatic family behind the multinational conglomerate Sibeko Gold. Their arrival coincides with the launch of a brand new development, revitalizing and re-energizing this former mining town. They promise jobs, investment and benefits to the community.

But are their intentions too good to be true? And will everyone greet them with open arms?

The family is headed up by shrewd businessman Jefferson Sibeko (played by Vusi Kunene). The younger brother of absent patriarch Lincoln Sibeko , Jefferson has long stood in his older brother’s shadow. Now is Jefferson’s time to make a mark on a new project in a new location.

But elements conspire to feed the bitterness and resentment he feels about his place in the pecking order, and soon he will be put to the ultimate test: is Jefferson Sibeko a man who will put his own interests above those of his nearest and dearest - even if it means trampling over family members to achieve his goal?

And the family member most directly in his firing line is his beloved niece, Nikiwe (played by Linda Sokhulu). Nikiwe is a fiery, passionate pioneer with big dreams, bigger plans and the guts to pursue them.

But when her advancement is at odds with her uncle’s schemes, will a rift develop between the older and younger Sibeko, threatening to break their bond forever?

The answer is ‘yes’ if Jefferson’s wife Katlego Sibeko (played by Kgomotso Christopher) has anything to do with it. As the wife of Jefferson Sibeko, Katlego has big ambitions for her husband, and we should fear for anyone who gets in her way.

Her marriage may be on unsteady ground, but that doesn’t mean she won’t fight tooth and claw to preserve her status in this world. But Nikiwe does have an ally in her best friend Ayanda Diale (played by Letoya Mangezi).

Raised by the Sibeko family after losing her father (an event closely linked to one of the Deep’s existing residents), Ayanda is currently regrouping after her musical career imploded during a very public meltdown.

Returning to the comfort and support of her surrogate family, Ayanda does not find the sanctuary she craved when she attracts the attention of Jefferson’s son Sifiso (the casting of this role still has to be confirmed).

Sifiso has long been obsessed with Ayanda, and this obsession has already resulted in a number of mysterious ‘accidents’ befalling those closest to Ayanda. It doesn’t help matters any that the son’s unrequited feelings for Ayanda are also secretly shared by his father!

Of course, any new arrivals on the Deep are going to attract the attention of its current residents. Will Barker and Cherel welcome the new family as allies or as enemies? … knowing Barker and Cherel, what do you think?

And how will these new faces impact on the Matabanes, Vusi Moletsane and the Molois? Let’s just say things are about to change…

Blood is thicker than water in this family, but when new blood is introduced, it’s only a matter of time before this blood could be spilt.

I am definetely going to be watching isidingo, 

I love Linda Sokhulu and Vusi Kunene, hey this sounds interesting through reading the summary, Sometimes you get tired of watching the same people, they must bring a man who will never fall in love with the Isidingo witch/Jezebel (Ms Devilliers-Haines le Roux)
