OMG last night I watched Relate, it was one of those hectic episodes. It was shocking, sad, and funny at the same time! Okay lemme break it down a lil. There was this guy his name is Moeketsi aka Lele. He is the one who approached Relate to help him with his problem.
This guy said he has a problem with his girlfriend, Veronica. He wants his girlfriend back after they broke up due to him abusing her. He said he has a problem with his temper. He just loses it and does outrageous things to his girlfriend - that is what drove her away.
He said he also has financial problems and suspects that is one of the reasons that made his girlfriend to leave him. He said another issue was not telling his girlfriend that he’s got financial problems. Instead he became all aggressive with her and did all sorts of things that drove her away.
He said one night he tried to commit suicide and forced his girlfriend to do the same. He said what happened is that, he came home late at night and his girlfriend asked him where he’s from.
He told her that he is from a friend. He said his girlfriend said “okay lets go to the friend” - then he asked her why she wants to go to his friend asking doesn’t she believe him and he hit her.
He said during that night as they were sleeping his girlfriend woke him up in the middle of the night at about 01h30 am and told him that they should break up. He said he begged his girlfriend not to leave him and apologized but Veronica didn’t want to hear it.
He said he just got out of bed and told his girlfriend that they must just both die. He told Veronica his family will mourn and her family will mourn so it will be 50/50. He said he took two hangers and hung them in the kitchen and told his girlfriend to hang herself on one of the hangers and he will follow after her.
He says Veronica pleaded with him telling him that she’s got two children she can’t do that. Some how Veronica managed to escape and that is why she is alive today.
Veronica also had a chance to tell Mam Angie what’s been happening between her and Moeketsi. Veronica said Moeketsi has a psychological problem and he needs counseling because it seems like he has anger issues.
Apparently he became more psycho when his mother passed away and it seems like he has not recovered from that. Veronica told Mam Angie she cannot get back with Moeketsi he is going to kill her, she just cannot.
She said Moeketsi has apologized to her numerous times and promised he will never abuse her again but he ends up abusing her again and again.
Moeketsi apologized to Veronica again in front of Mam Angie and promised her that he will never abuse her again. Veronica asked him what if he abuses her again because it is not the first time he has apologized to her. Moeketsi told her they will pray and ask God to help them.
As you know ke there are those 3 tasks that Mam Angie gives her guests. Moeketsi was given a task to go see a psychiatrist and psychologist then go to his grandmother with Veronica to apologize for the things he has done and then go to Veronica’s aunt to apologize as well.
Moeketsi went to the psychiatrist and the psychologist. I heard him saying the psychiatrist told him that being born pre-maturely could be one of the things that cause him to be aggressive and do the things he does.
Hayi ke drama began when it was time for Moeketsi and Veronica to go to granny’s house to apologize. Iyoh I was shocked even by the way he told Veronica that he has come to fetch her to go to his grandmother’s house.
He didn’t ask her nicely as someone who is still begging this woman to get back with him. He just told her “ndizokulanda la for siye ku gogo.”
Veronica looked at him with fear in her eyes. They went to granny’s house. I dunno what happened inside that house because Moeketsi got in, Veronica was still outside and all I heard was the sound of tables and chairs falling.
Veronica ran away. Moekesti came out and saw Veronica running away. Itjo he chased her jumping off the fence, ran to her, grabbed her and told her to come with him.
Tjo Veronica was too scared at that time telling Moeketsi to leave her alone. She doesn’t want to go with him. At that time Moeketsi was dragging her to come with him. Mam Angie had to intervene. Moekesti was even hitting the cameras. It was just chaos for those 10 minutes.
Tjo the way I was so shocked by what Moeketsi did! But shem it was too funny at the same time I couldn’t stop laughing. That guy is insane. I don’t think he is mentally stable he needs to be checked and Veronica must just never get back with that guy any day. He is dangerous. He is really gonna kill her for real if she goes back to him.
Anyway Mam Angie came to Veronica’s rescue and came down on Moeketsi. Tjo I also noticed that Mam Angie is too ghetto bathong. She told Moekesti if he keeps doing what he is doing she will also sort him out. She is not afraid of him she can fight him.
Moeketsi apologized shem. He asked Mam Angie to forgive him with tears coming out his eyes. He pleaded with Mam Angie and Mam Angie told him she forgives him and he must stop crying.
They all went to Moeketsi’s grandmother’s house and told her about what is happening between Moeketsi and Veronica. Granny told Mam Angie that Moeketsi has always been like that since he was a child. He was too hyper active and took medication. He stopped with his medication when he was 12.
Yhu hayi in all, this was a very hectic episode. It showed woman abuse happening right in front of our eyes in our TVs. Veronica even asked if Moeketsi can do what he did in front of strangers what is he gonna do to her when Relate people are gone? I can say it now he’s definitely gonna kill her.
Moeketsi even wanted lobola money that he claims he paid for Veronica. I dunno whether he really Lobola’d Veronica or he is just delusional. But Veronica’s aunt seemed to know nothing about the Lobola money he was talking about.
The aunt asked what Lobola money he wants and he couldn’t answer saying it was a mistake. I laughed so loud when Mam Angie forced Moeketsi to tell Veronica’s aunt exactly what he did. Saying to Moeketsi “mtshele umntwana wabantu ububambe ngama washing”
Hayi shem they both need counseling. Veronica is a traumatized woman. I hope she is seeing a councilor to help her get over the trauma that Moeketsi has caused her. And that psycho boyfriend needs to be kept at some institution until he is mentally stable and move on with his life and live Veronica alone.
