Season 5


Subtitled "The Gift & the Curse", Season 5 promises a spiritual awakening - and unravelling...

The mighty oil barons of KwaZulu-Natal, the Bhengu family, hang by a delicate thread.

Since the death of the patriarch, Zimele Bhengu, the question of ascendancy has been a sensitive one, and one best left alone.

But the discovery of natural gas on family land in Umbumbulu brings this diplomacy to an abrupt end.

Divisions are drawn between Zithulele and Nkululeko, both legitimate successors in their own right, forcing the Bhengu matriarchs - MaNdlovu and MaZulu - to choose a side.

This life-changing discovery threatens to destroy something the Bhengu family has long sought to protect – its unity.

For the first time in its history, the Bhengu family runs the risk of being a family divided.

In the Season 5 premiere: Shria is devastated to find out that Maharaj has left her, but Nirupa encourages her to move on.

Zithulele is having a crisis of self and goes to Phakade for help, only to discover something special at Zimele's gravesite.

Imbewu was created by Duma Ndlovu and is produced by Grapevine Productions in association with Word of Mouth Pictures, Videovision Entertainment and Luyks Productions.
