Did you watch Forgive and Forget
yesterday? Tjo it was like I am listening to someone telling what happened in one of these soapies. Well this is what happened if you didn’t watch…
A lady by the name of Promise
asked Forgive and Forget to help her ask for forgiveness to uBaba ka Sipho. So Doris
asked her what did she do that she wants to be forgiven for. Promise told Doris that she killed a man by the name of Sipho
in 2006. She said before all this happened she was dating Sipho's brother whose name is Somandla
. Sipho and Promise were neighbours so Somandla was staying with Sipho.
As Promise and Somandla were dating, Somandla got a job somewhere far from where they were staying. Somandla had to live there because he was working there. So while Somandla was away Promise got a new boyfriend who made her pregnant. After a month Somandla came to visit and Promise continued dating Somandla and kept it a secret that she is pregnant and it’s not Somandla's child.
Sipho knew that the child that Promise was carrying is not his brother’s child because he knew that Promise was going out with someone else while Sipho was away. When the baby was born Somandla decided to go introduce Promise and the baby to his parents in Nelspruit. Somandla thought this baby was his and he supported this baby. On the other side Promise was also being supported by the real baby daddy. Sipho kept quite about all this to his brother. He didn't say anything to him.
As Promise was Sipho’s neighbour some other day Promise asked Sipho if she could cook in his house because she didn't have electricity and Sipho agreed. So Promise went to Sipho's house to cook her dinner using her stove. Sipho's girlfriend Busi was there but Sipho wasn't there. Promise finished her cooking and went to her house and left her stove at Sipho's house. Later when she went to fetch her stove at Sipho's house she saw her stove lying outside the house and asked Sipho why her stove thrown away.
Sipho started swearing at her and called her umarosha who is playing his brother and named her with all sorts of names. Promise also swore back at Sipho. They shouted each and Promise ran to her house. As Promise was inside her house making herself some snack using a bread knife. Sipho came in her house shouting and Promised got frighten and raised her hands with the bread knife on the other head. Sipho approached her and she slit his throat with the bread knife and when she saw blood streaming down she ran away to hide at some hole in the streets.
She decided to go to the police station to tell them everything that happened and she was arrested for attempted murder. Two or three days later the police came to tell her that Sipho has died. She cried and was told her case has been changed to murder. So she was in jail for 3 months and later released because the court ruled the case as self defence since this happened in her house. She was supposed to spend 10 years in jail but the court ruled that in 5 years she mustn’t offend anyone. I don’t remember what she wasn’t supposed to do in the other five years.
Sipho’s father watched her video as she was apologizing asking for his forgiveness and that of his family. The old man cried afterwards, it was so sad. And Doris explained to him what the show is about and that if he accepts Promise’s apology they will open the door and he will see Promise and talk to her if he wants. If he doesn’t forgive her they will just leave without him seeing Promise.
Tjo uBaba ka Sipho said no, he doesn’t believe what she is saying and he doesn’t forgive her and the truck just simply moved while Promise was standing there in front of the door. She cried shem when the truck left, leaving her standing there. Forgive and Forget offered her counseling after that.
Tjo I was thinking tjeer this woman lied to this family about the baby on top of that killed their son. So would you forgive her if you were Sipho’s father or family? I tried to make it shorter peeps :-)
