It is funny how Dumisani has the nerve to give the interns an assignment on child abuse when he is the biggest women abuser out there. You could clearly see that Khethowe is not happy with this assignment as she knows she is being abused by Dumisani but she is doing nothing about. But I guess this is the scenario faced by a lot of women today. They are abused day in and day out in their homes by the partners but they keep quiet. Why do they do this? Is it because they are scared to come out and say anything due to the fear they have of their partner? I think this is the reason as I honestly can not think of anyone who enjoys being abused.
What baffles me even more about Khethiwe is that she now wants to take Dumisani to her home so she can meet her gogo and the rest of the family and let them know that she is now staying with Dumisani. Dumisani is not keen about this idea at all as he says ‘family complicates everything’. I think the reason that Dumisani does not want Khethiwe’s family to know that they are staying together is that Khethiwe can then turn to her family at any time and tell them that Dumisani is abusing her.
Now on the other hand, Khethiwe has someone like Ace who is deeply in love with her but she is rather opting to be stuck in an abusive relationship. Ace is not Mr. Perfect but you can see he loves Khethiwe. Who would ever have thought that Ace of all people would write a love letter? Well he did write one for Khethiwe and Khethiwe just through it away.
At times we fall in love with the wrong person and I think that is exactly what has happened to Khethiwe.
