Was Fiks, the sister of Puleng?
Throughout the show you might have wondered if they both are sisters or not. Although it is evident from their physical appearance that they might be sisters but the show also casually drops several hints throughout its runtime to establish this truth. It starts off in the party where Wade after clicking Puleng’s picture says that she looks similar to a girl in her school. Puleng initially dismisses the claim but later she herself finds the striking similarities between them and starts to think that Fiks could be her lost sister.
She starts to do stalk her. After getting close to Fiks, Puleng first interviews her for the school magazine and asks her personal questions about her childhood. Fiks fails to answer most of these, and this further increases Puleng’s suspicion. Puleng then sneaks into the school to see the birth certificate of Fiks and with the help of Wade she finds about the scam which is going on.
They meet a lady who used to sign and create fake birth certificates, she, now in prison, admits for what she has done and that she created certificates for many children. After investigating more, Puleng also discovers that Mrs. Bhele, the woman who claims to be Fiks’ mother, was previously not able to conceive any children. But then Fiks came along one day, and everyone called her the “miracle child.” While stalking Puleng’s boyfriend JB, Wade comes across JB’s father’s profile and learns that he works for a renowned law firm known as Molapo Fisher and Associates, which had earlier defended an adoption agency involved in child trafficking.
This confirms that not only Fiks’ mother but many other families were a part of the child trafficking scheme. Fiks realizes that Puleng has been stalking her all this while. When she confronts her, Puleng finally reveals it to her that her real name is Phumelele Khumalo, and she is her sister. Since Fiks never had a problem with her foster parents because they raised her in the best possible way, but still Fiks always had this feel and the need to be more settled in her life.
This also explains her scandalous relationship with her swimming coach. On the other hand, when it comes to JB’s father, Mr. Molapo, he sure is involved in the whole scam on a much bigger scale since he has been defending the perpetrators of child trafficking and also wrongly accused Puleng’s father of the crime.
