Moja Love's Umndeni gave viewers another drama-packed episode last night. The show left fans in their feels once more.

Maseko's wives were at it again this week, and this time viewers are not happy with the first wife Mahlale'ntabeni, while Dabula remains the least favourate for the viewers. Mamkhulu (first wife) has been dragged on Twitter for being "two-faced".

"Now they are singing hymns after saying “Maseko will love you”🤣🤣🤣Guys Please Moja Love must respect us and also stop mocking God! Also Am I the only one who saw that Dabula and MamKhulu are forcing the dlozi shandis?🤣🤣🤣🤣 #Umndeni," @RoyaktyV133 tweeted.
Tweeps say Mahlale'ntabeni is only nice to Nkanyezi when Dabula is not around. Last week's episode saw Dabula and Mahlale'ntabeni ganging up on Nkanyezi and throwing her out aggressively.

The episode angered fans and also sparked Gender-Based Violence allegations. Here are a few reactions from Twitter.

@AdvoBarryRoux tweeted: "They must leave Nkanyezi alone she moved out and start over now they still go and provoke her as for Dabula he must not forget that he’s still a man to even raise his hands on Nkanyezi. #Umndeni"
Violence and Drama have always been the highlights of the show. But there is more to the show than drama. Umndeni tackles issues of polygamy, homosexuality, and traditional practices.

When the show was gearing up for the reunion back in 2020, the chosen host Selby 'Selbeyonce' Mkhize opened up to SowetanLive about the importance of the show.

Also speaking about hosting the reunion Selby told the publication, "I’m very excited because we’re closing off Pride Month with a bang, and I’m also very honoured to be chosen amongst so many people. I think the show itself is absolutely phenomenal. I must commend the producers for bringing a show of this nature to our screens. They did a remarkable job.

"I think most people still look down on the LGBTQI+ community. They think everyone within our community is just confused and doesn’t know what they’re doing. Unfortunately, some people still think being gay puts you in the limelight and that people are gay because they want to be popular."

Moja Love Channel Manager Jackie Setati previously told Mail & Guardian that the idea behind Umndeni was to bring positivity into the broadcasting industry.

“A lot of the representation is a handover of apartheid. It is almost always stereotypical. Even as a black producer it’s hard to step away from the stereotypes and that’s what we want to do,” she said.
