Those who watches Uzalo will understand what I am going to talk about here. The show's main character whose name is Nkunzi Mhlongo, a character portrayed by Masoja Msiza is the same as Hollywood's Vin Diesel of Fast and the Furious franchise. He is all about family.
This man raised a girl because he thought she was his daughter. he found out later that this girl whose name is Zekhethelo, a character portrayed by Nyaleng Thibedi is not his biological daughter, but he still loved her and never wanted to let go of the fact that she is his daughter.
Zekhethelo found the Mhlongo household being toxic then she left to start her own life away from her father. She is now about to get married to the pastor; the same pastor who is about to discover that his biological father is the same Nkunzebomvu Mhlongo.
My question is, what would you do as a father if you found yourself being in Nkunzi's shoes? remember that your daughter wants nothing to do with you but you still feel entitled to her life in such away that you still love her even when she has distanced herself.
I personally do not think that it is up to him as a father to decide what they will do but the daughter is the one who should decide here. in making her decision, she must remember that Nkunzi is still her father and she must respect him. Marrying his biological son will be totally disrespectful to the man who raised her without questioning here real identity, especially if he is against their union.
One might say it is a good thing because she is officially going to become a Mhlongo but what if the man who's the head of Mhlongo household does not approve? He loves her and she will always be a daughter to him.
This reminds me of one of the short stories that I saw on Mzansi Magic whereby a man raises a girl who wasn't his. Her mother was married to this man so he also took responsibility of raising the baby girl even when his wife had passed. his late wife's family then called him to choose another woman from the family who will be his next wife and the man chose the same daughter that he raised to take her mother's place in him. it did not end well as she only saw him as her father.
Now imagine if Nkunzi's daughter has to marry his biological son. it will change a lot of things between them and it will become even worse if this son and his daughter's marriage fail. She must first consider honouring him by realising that he is her father after all and he is the only parent who can bless her.
