Qhabanga considers confronting Mr Mbatha in front of the congregation but Gabisile stops him. “Qhabanga was fired because he had a series of emotional breakdowns following a personal crisis. If he causes a scene and lashes out at Mr Mbatha in public, he might ruin his chances of becoming a pastor again,” says Siyabonga.
Gabisile, being the wise woman that she is, suggests that her husband forces Mr Mbatha out of the church in private. That way, no one will know that they’ve expelled him.
“While Mbatha is preparing one of his sermons, Qhabanga walks into his office and demands that he steps down or else Qhabanga will expose his evil doings to the church. Guilty, Mbatha is left with no other choice but to resign. Although I can’t tell you all the details, Mr Mbatha will ensure that his last night at church is one to remember,” adds Siyabonga.
But that’s only half the battle won – the church elders don’t fully trust Qhabanga to return to the pulpit. “He will have his work cut out for him trying to prove himself to the congregation again. But if he can overthrow Mbatha, winning back the elders should be a breeze,” explains the actor.
