After Muvhango’s Chief Azwindini was hailed the primary suspect in the killing of psycho Mongezi Zwane, Twitter and Facebook went abuzz with people claiming Mrs Teboho Mukwevho is behind the killing. Of course I quickly brushed off the allegations as nothing but a means by Thandaza’s loyalists to blame Teboho with anything and everything sinister.
Maybe is because I failed to understand how Teboho could have killed Mongezi. It didn’t make any sense to me. Why would Teboho want to get rid of Mongezi, for what, I asked myself without finding answers to my questions but because it was not a pressing issue for me at that time, I flipped my hand and left it as is and continued fefering other issues.
But today, Tuesday 29 October 2013, I’m starting to think that people who charged Teboho as being responsible for Mongezi’s death may have been predicting a reality. One thing for sure about Teboho is that she’s power hungry and influence excites her.
As for a killer, she’s not. Yes, she shot Thandaza but we need to understand the context and what was happening at that point of time. Thandaza pushed Teboho too far and at one point threatened to take Morena away from her.
Clearly she wasn’t thinking straight and the fear of losing her only son who means a lot to her sparked and the only solution to her problems was to get rid of Thandaza, at least that’s what she may have thought.
There is enough evidence to suggest that Teboho does not have the necessary resources to challenge Thandaza in court but with Thandaza six feet under, Teboho will emerge victorious. Ranthumeng may have been another reason that forced Teboho to resent Thandaza.
Mmm, I think I’m overly protecting Teboho now. But anyway, my big head fails to link Teboho to the shooting of Mongezi. I think Mongezi was shot by whoever that shot him and it happened that Azwindini took a fall for that and like any other person concerned with power, Teboho saw it as a perfect platform to run anti-Azwindini machinery by discrediting him to the police while canvassing for Mulalo to take over the reigns as the Chief and leader of the Mukwevho kraal.
I fail to understand where and how Teboho saw Mongezi and killed him, how and where she got hold of the pistol. But with Teboho, you’ll never know; anything is possible with this soft spoken woman.
BUT if she was able to shoot Thandaza and the CCTV footage of a multi-million listed company failed to capture her yellow dress and at the same time faked to have been in Lesotho at the time of shooting, then everything is possible with her. Killing Mongezi is nothing!
Wow! What a good actress. I wish her all the best of luck with her nominee and my fingers are crossed that she win in the “outstanding newcomer” category at the Royalty soapie awards.
