‘Skeem Saam’ Review: Meikie Maputla’s ‘award-winning performance’

0

Actress Harriett Manamela, who plays the role of Meikie Maputla, gave a stellar performance on Monday night’s episode of Skeem Saam.

She turned Mantuli’s (Dieketseng Mnisi) house upside down looking for her after her on-screen husband John Maputla (Africa Tsoai) lied to her about their secretive meetings.

Mantuli ran away to her brother’s house in Tembisa as soon as she left John’s (Africa Tsoai) office .

Fans in awe of Meikie’s outburst

Fans were in awe of just how angry she was. Our ears are still ringing from her screaming!

WHO IS HARRIET MANAMELA?

 Harriet Manamela, who was born in Soweto’s Diepkloof in 1971, joined SABC2’s popular soapie Skeem Saam in 2011 to play the role of Meikie Maputla.

Manamela has also appeared in Yizo Yizo, Isidingo, Soul Buddyz, and Rhythm City.

The actress has received a Safta Award in 2012 for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the movie Life Above All.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MEIKIE THIS SEASON

Meikie and John’s marriage will be tested this season. She has forgiven John for his previous affairs with Charity Ramabu (Mokgofe Moagi), as well as his past relationship with Mary Matloga (Motshabi Tyelele).

But Meikie might not forgive John this time around because Mantuli is her best friend.

She feels humiliated now that she knows that Zamokuhle (Clement Maosa) is John Maputla’s son, especially because she trusted Mantuli.

Meikie ‘stripped of her dignity’

She will be tempted to use her gun which will go missing. It’s unclear whether John or her son Leeto (Eric Macheru) will be the ones to hide it from her.

Meikie will no doubt need a lot of therapy to get over the betrayal and will probably kick John Maputla out of the house. She will probably suggest her family moves to another house if John refuses to leave.

This is the first time that we’ll see Meikie stripped of her dignity.
