He is charismatic and utterly charming. However he carries himself like a successful business man. He’s ambitious, calculative and can be ruthless. He’s a chameleon who easily plays different roles to different people to get what he wants. Mthunzi is the son of Dambisa Maduna, who is a domestic worker for the Langa family.
Mthunzi was born out of wedlock, and his mother’s family rejected him and shamed his mother. He practically grew up without his mother, who left him to be raised by his grandmother.
As a child he once visited his mother at work and had a bad experience with the Langa’ s, which left him feeling unwanted and disrespected. He grew up to resent them; also believing that he never had a chance to have a mother because of them.
He gets an opportunity for revenge and comes into our world as an infiltrator.
