Skeem Saam: Mapitsi feels increasingly uncomfortable in her own home

Monday night’s episode of Skeem Saam saw Koloi and Billy returning to school, where Koloi was met by bullies who targeted him about his mother’s death.

The latest episode of SABC 1’s Skeem Saam, which aired on Monday, 19 August 2019, saw Connie’s children return to school after her death, with the reluctant help of Sis Ouma. The boys still struggled with the loss of their mother, leaving them disorientated and forgetful, which seemed to frustrate Sis Ouma as that made her late for work. Upon arriving at school, Koloi was teased about his newly shaved head and was picked on for receiving extra attention from his teacher, who noticed that he seemed distracted.

Viewers shared their sympathy for Koloi, however, many questioned the reasoning for bullying to be added to his storyline. Mmabatho Mash shared a tweet which stated, “Kids are normally very sensitive to other people’s pain, I don’t know where the writers are going with Koloi being bullied for his mom’s death, let’s wait and see…” Another viewer commented with, “Koloi is ignoring his friends for his sanity. Grief does that, isolation is important and also part of healing.”

The upcoming episode of Skeem Saam sees Rachel being stood up as she continues her quest to secure her safety. Mapitsi is not too pleased to learn who Botshelo’s new love interest is and Koloi is given reason to avenge his mother’s death.

Skeem Saam airs weekdays at 18:30 on SABC 1.
