Reformed criminal Nhlamulo promises to go on the straight and narrow for his new wife, but 9-to-5 is a hard life.
LEZANNE JANSE VAN RENSBURG

Getting a job when you’ve got gaps on your CV is hard enough. Spare a thought for Nhlamulo (Matthews Rantsoma) who has gaps he doesn’t want to explain. “It’s impossible to hide gaps but he hopes prospective employers don’t ask. If they do ask, he will explain (that he was a criminal in his previous life),” says the actor, whose character has promised his new wife Lindiwe (Nomvelo Makhanya) that he has changed. “It’s important because they have been through a lot of ups and downs, especially with Nhlamulo’s ‘career choice’, his past actions and where it all led. Them living a normal life is ultimately the biggest reason for the straight and narrow.” But Nhlamulo’s past isn’t ready to let go just yet…

A NEW LIFE

The couple recently returned from their beach getaway honeymoon. “It was a beautiful time and now they’re ready to start their lives together,” explains Matthews. But his character is unemployed at the moment and that adds some pressure. “He is looking for jobs. He’ll take anything I suppose, but he has experience in IT and tech. He can walk the walk and talk the talk, he just needs a chance,” says the actor. Secretly though, Nhlamulo isn’t quite ready for the desk-bound 9-to-5 grind just yet, says Matthews. “Truly? He isn’t ready. But he gives his all to this as he wants to keep his wife happy. He wants to make this work and make his marriage work.” Nhlamulo even asks Lindiwe to help him with his CV and he applies to recruitment agencies online. But when his phone rings, it’s not good news.
