We’re about six episodes deep in Mzansi Magic's telenovela about a murderous, quite treacherous group of church women. And the quick question I need to just ask is bazalwane, kanti ninje abomama bomthandazo?, which loosely translates to "beloveds, is this how women of prayer should behave?"
Okay, on the reals though. This series is wonderful because it has brought together a couple of really strong female actresses, namely Masechaba Mtolo, Joyce Skefu, Nokuthula Ledwaba on one screen. And Khanyi Mbau and Unathi Guma are also doing the absolute most.
Let’s jump into this week’s episode. So Moruti spent the entire night at Raki’s house getting a rat out? Yeyi, that’s a lot.
While we’re still there we discover that Dora is siphoning money out of the stokvel. Not before 'Ghoroa' or 'Ghonorrhea' as he’s affectionately known on these Twitter streets, attempts to threaten the illest bomama in the game and ends up being called a little man.
A moment of silence for this absolutely wicked come back by mamoruti Fumane.
There was however a small matter of the amounts-where tweeps, and rightfully so queried the sum of money that was actually stolen when Thabang was killed.
It seems here there’s a little misunderstanding about how much there actually was and how it was to be divided up amongst abomama bomthandazo. Maybe as the show progresses this will be cleared for us?
By the end of the episode, little man Ghoroa had decided to take Tjontjo (Mapule's niece) to teach abomama a lesson, and Mapule had already started freaking out.
Bazalwane but this Gorowa boy why ethatha ingane? Why?

As the old adage goes: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Methinks, when the abomama eventually discover he’s behind the child’s disappearance there will be hell and then some to pay.
In the meantime, we’ll patiently wait for next Sunday to see what happens next.
In the words of the Parental Advisory Productions sting: Indeed boys, I too think you've got one.
Abomama airs on Mzansi Magic, channel 161 Sundays at 8pm.
