Monday night’s episode of Skeem Saam saw Marothi belittling Rachel and her achievements, in order to maintain his dominance in the relationship, leaving viewers frustrated with his behaviour.
The latest episode of SABC 1’s Skeem Saam, which aired on Monday, 6 April 2020, saw Marothi verbally abusing Rachel due to his inferiority complex. Although Rachel questioned his attitude towards her, she remained quiet about the issues due to her pride. The relationship between the couple saw many viewers weighing in on the matter, as they believed the incidents were the beginning stages of an abusive and toxic relationship.
See the social media commentary below.
#SkeemSaam is showing that when you marry, you should know who you are marrying. Marothi wanted a house/trophy wife now she wants to work and obviously that will frustrate him.

Insecure men like Marothi
are intimidated by financially
independent women like Rachel…
They want women who depend
on them so they can feel powerful.#SkeemSaam
