Friday night’s episode of the e.tv soapie,
Scandal! gave had viewers on the edge of their seats when Jojo (played by Melusi Mbhele) tried to trick Winnie (played by Fundiswa Ngcobo) into signing over her parental rights.
Jojo spoke to a lawyer about wanting sole custody of his child Nkazimulo. He was advised that the only option he has is to get the birth mother to sign a legal contract agreeing to it.
He knew that this may offend Winnie but he thought she was naively going to sign but to his surprise, she put up a fight and stormed out.
WINNIE FIGHTS FOR HER CHILD
Mbali’s younger sister has proved to be an ambitious person and this has left viewers shocked. When Jojo came back home, she was already giving her friend a house tour.
Before approaching her, Jojo spoke to his siter Duduzile (Sihle Ndaba), who advised him that he needs to think long-term. She suggested that he offer her money and visitation rights.
Confused by what Jojo was asking of her, Winnie told him that a contract is not necessary.
“I thought you knew that Nkazimulo is my child and I love him…signing these papers means Nkazimulo is no longer my son.
Jojo told her that she will always be Nkazimulo’s mother and she will be present for the first four years of his life. She will then get a settlement.
Winnie was at this point visibly upset, “Everybody just uses me. Mbali used me to give birth. Now you’re treating me like a baby sitter. This is my child.
Seeing that Winnie was not budging, Jojo decided to remind her that they used him. “You have the nerve to refuse to sign that, after what you did! Winnie please sign,” he begged.
Winnie simply walked out and left him standing there.
