Season 8

Isibaya is a South African soap opera created by Angus Gibson, Catherine Stewart, Teboho Mahlatsi and Desireé Maarkgraaf and produced by The Bomb Shelter which depicts the battle for wealth and power between the Zungus and the Ndlovus, two rival families living in Thukela Valley, and set against the backdrop of the South African taxi industry.

When the series begins, two young lovers are torn apart by a century old feud between two powerful families.

From a valley long divided by too little resources the bitter feud continues in Egoli, the city of gold, as the Zungus seek to build their fortune.

The promise of riches and old cycles of revenge tears them apart but one man's quest for reconciliation and peace leads them all to understand that they can prosper together.

On the East side of the Valley lives the Zungus, a household headed by charismatic and influential Mpiyakhe and his sister Mkabayi, who run a successful taxi business.

Mkabayi runs the rural taxi yard; she is a fierce and powerful matriarch who has sworn herself to celibacy after the assassination of her betrothed when she was a young girl.

She is loyal, traditional and under the tough exterior warm-hearted. Mpiyakhe's two rural wives run the Bhubusini compound.

Mpiyakhe lives in Soweto with his fourth wife, Iris, a beautiful but scheming and manipulative woman.

She has no children but is the stepmother to Mpiyakhe's two children – Thandeka and Jabu - from his first wife, who died in a taxi clash 14 years back.

Mpiyakhe runs the taxi business and is chairman of the East Side taxi association.

On the West side lives Samson Ndlovu's family, they too operate a big taxi business, but are less successful than Mpiyakhe.

Samson is a bitter man, but hides under a veneer of tradition; his brother Mandla is bloodthirsty and wants vengeance on the Zungus.

Can their love survive the bitter feuds that surround them? Will their families tear them apart or will their love triumph in the end?
