CHAPTER 52


Lisa calls us to the table and we all head there. We sit down and she dishes for her father. I wonder where Sthabile is.


Lisa: “you will dish for my brother MaCele and bhuti Sbo you will dish up for yourself because you don’t have a lady friend.” Both the brothers laugh. I dish for Kuhle and then dish for myself. We start eating. Lisa is busy telling her father about the place she lives in. 


King: “I heard you were getting an award MaCele.” I chuckle. 

Me: “yes. We are going to Libya next week. I hope you have your suit ready.” I say looking at Kuhle. He smiles and looks down. I know he forgot.


Kuhle: “I wanna match with you so I wanted to know the colour of your dress first.” I roll my eyes. 

Me: “call Xoli and ask her. She is the one who knows the colour of my dress. It’s a surprise. They don’t wanna me to know.” 


Lisa: “you guys are going to Tripoli next weekend?” Kuhle nods. “I have a client that I need to meet up with in Tobruk.” 

King: “you’re already leaving SA?” 

Lisa: “daddy you know that’s how I roll. But I promise you I will go back home with you and come back to Durban on Friday morning just in time for the flight.” 


King: “that’s better. We still have to have some bonding sessions. And I am sure your mothers don’t even know that you are in the country.” She clears her throat.

Lisa: “I will call them but if they talk about the husband issue again I am going to ignore them for the rest of my stay.”

Sbo: “stop being dramatic sisi.” Kuhle chuckles. 


Kuhle: “I am not even going to complain.” My phone rings and I frown when I see who is calling.

Me: “I have to take this. I am sorry.” I stand up and head to the kitchen while answering the call. “Busani what’s up?”


Busani: “I am sorry for disturbing you Futhy but something happened at the Nongoma site where we are building Prince Kuhle’s palace. They didn’t inspect the site well. We started building and now the walls collapsed because the foundation wasn’t strong enough.” 

Me: “who the fuck inspected that site?” something like this has never happened before. Seems like someone is trying to sabotage me. 


Busani: “Donna she is a new land surveyor.” 

Me: “this project is huge. How can you let someone new deal with it? How can you be so incompetent?”


Busani: “I am sorry boss.”

Me: “did someone get hurt?”

Busani: “Landile hurt his leg. The bricks collapsed on it. We are taking him to the hospital.” 

Me: “I will try and get a quick transport that will get him to Netcare here in Durban. Where does this Donna stay?” 


Busani: “in Sydenham.” I sigh. 

Me: “I will let you know when I get the transport.” I hang up. I head outside. I signal Zamoh to get off the car. He comes out together with Thobeka and Mabutho. 

Zamoh: “what is it boss?”


Me: “I need you to go to the office and tell Zah to give you every single detail about a new land surveyor called Donna. She has crossed the wrong woman and she is going to regret it.” I turn back and go inside the house. I head to the dining room. I have just lost my appetite. “Kuhle can I talk to you?” he stands up and come to me. We head to the lounge. 


Kuhle: “what’s wrong?”

Me: “do you have a chopper that is in KwaNongoma right now?” he scratches his head. 


Kuhle: “yes. It’s in the palace. What’s wrong Futhy?” I narrate the story to him. “They must not take Landile to Benedictine because they are not going to get help there. Let me make some calls and then get back to you right now.” He climb the stairs and disappear to the hallway. I try and think of any enemies that I have and none come up. Who did this?


I head to the kitchen and take out bottled water from the fridge. I drink it in one go and breathe after that. I sit on the barstool and just think. I know that this is a sabotage. I wonder who assigned this land surveyor because Wendy Richard and Matt always do the surveying. Kuhle comes back after a while. 


Kuhle: “forward Busani’s number to my phone.” I quickly do as instructed. He taps on his phone for a while and then place it on the counter. He then comes to my side and hugs me. “Everything is going to be okay. Don’t worry.” 

Me: “someone is trying to sabotage me Kuhle. Ever since I started DCC nothing like this has happened before.” 


Kuhle: “don’t worry we are going to get to the bottom of this.” I nod. 

Me: “I need to leave. I have to be at Nongoma by tomorrow morning.”

Kuhle: “you haven’t even told me what brought you here.” I chuckle. I totally forgot. 


Me: “I wanted to ask you out on a double dinner date. Danny is coming to Durban this weekend and he is bringing his boyfriend. He wanted to dine with me and told me to bring a plus one so I thought about you.” He chuckles. 

Kuhle: “I am very flattered and don’t worry I am going to come.” I roll my eyes. 


Me: “I knew you were going to come. You don’t know how to say no to me.” he laughs.

Kuhle: “true that.” 

Me: “can you drive me home? I have sent my guards somewhere.”

Kuhle: “okay. Let’s go say goodbye to everyone then.” We head to the dining room. 


Me: “I am sorry about leaving in the middle of the lunch but there is an emergency that needs me at work.” 

Lisa: “is everything okay?” I look at her and suddenly an idea comes to mind. 


Me: “you can hack anything from anywhere right?” she chuckles and nods. “Can you give me your number? I need you to hack someone for me but I will forward you all the details later on.” I hand her my phone and she saves her number in there. 


Lisa: “whatever it is that is wrong

Lisa: “whatever it is that is wrong we are going to sort it out.” I nod. 

Me: “bye everyone.” Kuhle and I head out. We drive out in his BMW 320i. “So you are not going to tell me what is eating you?” he chuckles. 


Kuhle: “no. but what I can tell you is that I am wifing you next year on Good Friday.” I giggle. 

Me: “dream on my prince dream on.” He laughs. 

Kuhle: “we will see.”

I am happy that Kuhle is the client for the Nongoma project. If it was another person I would be facing a law suit right now. The guards come back home and give me the information they got about Donna. I quickly send it to Lisa. I then tell them about our little trip and then go pack my clothes. I should be going with Xoli since Zah is supposed to hold down the forte. I am sure Phumudzo is going to kill me for disturbing his fiancé so I just forget about her. 


I video call Wendy and tell her that I need to her to be at Nongoma first thing tomorrow morning with her team. I decide no fuck it we are going to sleep at Nongoma so that we can tackle on this issue first thing in the morning. I call Xoli because as much as I have to do damage control there are some things that I can’t do by myself. She answers after a few rings. 


Xoli: “boss lady.”

Me: “Xoli I need you to book two suites for me at any lodge or hotel in Nongoma. I wanna check in tonight.” 

Xoli: “is everything okay?”


Me: “just a work emergency that I need to attend to.” she sighs. 

Xoli: “okay I will book and then send you the references.” 


Me: “Xoli a wall collapsed in the Nongoma project leading to one of the workers getting injured. He should be here in a few hours. Contact Kuhle and make sure you settle his hospital bills and get everything ready for him at Netcare in uMhlanga. Also call Zah and tell her to attend or cancel all my meetings for tomorrow.”

Xoli: “okay boss.” I hang up. 


I take a shower and then dry my body. I pack my toiletries and put them in my weekend bag. I get dressed in a grey letter graphic drawstring waist jumpsuit and white sneakers. I comb my hair and tie it to a neat bun. I pack all my gadgets in the weekend bag and then head downstairs. I find the guards chatting in the kitchen. Mabutho is the one who is cooking. 


Me: “change of plans we are leaving in an hour. So go pack.” Zamoh and Thobeka head out. 

Mabutho: “I am nearly done with this stew.” I chuckle. 

Me: “no problem but you will have to pack it on containers.” 

Mabutho: “we are going with the Amarok so tell Zamoh to prepare it.” He nods. 


I head to the backyard and just sit on the bench in the garden. I do breathing exercises to calm me down. Running a company can be hard because it’s not all roses every time.
