Rewind of Gomora Episodes this Past Week

Quick Recap on What Went Down on Gomora Last Week.



If you are going to choose a life of crime, the worst thing you can do is laugh like a hyena. After her husband is killed in a carjacking gone awry, the one detail that Thathi remembered was how one of the three assailants laughed. Fans of Gomora will know that Jomo provides the spine-chilling laugh at the beginning of every show – Gomora, hahahaha! It is this same guffaw that got Jomo arrested when Thathi heard him laughing in her mother’s tavern. Once behind bars, Jomo showed that he was not such a tough guy.

Under questioning from Detective Kolisi, Jomo began to show signs of strain. Fearing that he would snitch, Mam Sonto sent the blonde-haired Mazet to remind him of his loyalties. But Jomo, not the brightest criminal in Alex, let slip during interrogation that his boss was a woman. This did not go down well with the ruthless Mam Sonto. Even though she gave Mazet one last chance to bring Jomo back in line, she arranged for a policeman to deliver a plate of poisoned food to his jail cell. Despite grumbling about the quality of the food, Jomo still took the bait. No sooner had he finished his food than he became ill. More on Jomo later.


When your ex wants you back

Melusi was Thathi’s high school sweetheart whom, we learn from the bitter sister, Pretty, paid for Thathi’s college tuition – until she dumped him for the richer, more powerful Mbongeni. Thathi went to Gomora High under the pretext of thanking Principal Melusi for welcoming her children to his school. Somehow, her visit rapidly deteriorates into a weep-fest of self pity and Thathi ends up crying all over her ex. It is at this point that Gladys, who has long sensed her husband’s feelings, walks in with Melusi’s lunch. As they say, the guilty are afraid, and Thathi’s guilty feet carry her swiftly out of Melusi’s office leaving him to face his broken-hearted wife.

Boys and their fathers

But, it is not only Thathi who is stewing in guilt. Teddy and Ntokozo rescued Langa from a beating on the mean streets of Gomora. If Teddy’s motive for saving Langa was purely ubuntu, then Ntokozo was driven by the acidity of his guilt for killing Mbongeni (Langa’s father). After completing their punishment for fighting – a week of washing windows at Gomora High – the three boys exchange sob stories. Langa grew up pampered and had everything, everything except his father’s attention.


Ntokozo wishes his father, the authoritarian school principal, would be less severe. Teddy, the son of an alcoholic village bicycle, only wishes he knew who, among his mother’s many partners, was his father, giving credence to one of life’s greatest truisms – when you think your predicament is bad; someone else has it worse than you.

It’s either she goes or I go

Back at the Dlamini residence, Thathi gives Melusi an ultimatum; either he commits to her or she leaves. Actually, what she did was challenge him to look her in the eye and tell her he is no longer in love with Thathi, which he failed to do. Meanwhile Thathi stepped up her pursuit of Melusi. She brought muffins, a euphemism for um, er, sex. Because everyone – especially Pretty – knows that a woman delivering pastries to a man wants more than just to feed him. Sadly for Thathi, Melusi not only snubbed her offer of “muffins”, but told her to find new friends because he had “moved on.”

Woo shem, that must have hurt, but maybe not as much as it hurt Melusi, twenty years ago, being dumped after putting a girl through business college. It is very symbolic when Melusi later pulls out a photograph of Thathi – one he kept in a secret spank bank for two decades – before tossing it into the bin. Even though Melusi had done the right thing, he arrived home to find his wife tossing clothes into an open suitcase. But he comes clean about “the ghost” that has been lurking in their marriage for twenty years. By the end of his emotional speech, Melusi said the words that Gladys had wanted to hear – “I choose you.” This was enough for Gladys to put her clothes back into the wardrobe.

Tying up loose ends

It takes more than a little rat poison to kill guys like Jomo. He woke up to find Detective Kolisi in his guarded hospital room. On his wrist was a pair of handcuffs. Just when we thought Jomo would give up Mam Sonto, the woman who had tried to poison him, we find out that he has lost the ability to speak. Because that’s what poison does in the movies!

Detective Kolisi, thinking quickly on her feet, offers him a pen and pad. But alas, Jomo spent his childhood dancing to Kwaito instead going to school, and is therefore illiterate. Only the Lord knows how he is able to load airtime onto his phone if he can’t read the Cell C airtime card. While Kolisi awaited Jomo to regain his powers of speech – and his villainous laugh – Mam Sonto was ten steps ahead. She snuck in, disguised as hospital tea lady and finished Jomo off with a pillow. Sweet dreams Jomo.

Utatakho comes to Gomora

Pretty reveals what anyone with half a brain had suspected all along; Langa, Thathi’s first born, might just be Melusi’s biological son. Nimrod Nkosi’s ears must have pricked up like a police dog’s at the mention of Thathi’s drunken confession to Pretty, twenty years ago. DNA test please!

Gomora takes a break

So far, Gomora has lived up to its billing. The only sad thing is that the show is taking a break. Even great works of art succumb to the Coronavirus. Until Gomora returns, fans are left wondering… now that Jomo is gone, who will give us the laugh. Gomora! Hahahaha!

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.




They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.


It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.

The highly anticipated social experiment brings under Biggie’s roof housemates from both South Africa and Nigeria. And for 72 days, we will be splashed with the finest in South African and Nigerian swag, banter, romance and all the trappings of a fun-filled, dramatic and – we’d hope – an entertaining show.

A first of its kind, the social experiment assembles the most colourful personalities from the two nations to outwit, outplay and outsmart each other in a bid to get their hands on a massive bag, life-changing bag!

In addition to a number of lofty prizes that will likely be on the line throughout the season, the winner of the show will also be walking away, a whopping grand prize of US $100 000 (over R1,7 million) is up for grabs for the one who trounces his Housemates to charm audiences across the continent.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.

Fans of Big Brother Mzansi and Big Brother Naija in the diaspora are not left out as Showmax will stream the show in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and about 50 other countries.
