In the SABC 2 Venda series Muvhango, many things have been going wrong in many households. First, Rendani was tired of playing the victim and took matters into his own hands regarding Tshireletso. However, she seems not to be the only one that feels that the legal system has failed them as a masked man gives Tendamudzimu Mudau a taste of his own unlawful medicine.
When James’ mother reported the matter of Hulisani’s murder to the police, she expected to no longer live in fear of what Tenda might do to keep her mouth shut. However, when the man was granted bail, she went back to living watching over her shoulder. However, this only lasted a couple of hours as a guardian angel in the form of a masked vigilante abducted Tenda at his office parking lot.
Mpho had been worried that her husband had not come back from the office the previous night is surprised to see police officers in her house accusing Tenda of running away and breaking the conditions of his bail. Whilst they are still searching for Tenda in the house, Ndiwavho runs in and shows her the video of the vigilante’s live stream.
