It’s a very comedic moment when Mr. Mbatha (Thabo Mnguni) and Babeka-zi (Duduzile Ngcobo) team up to pull off a daring heist by stealing from Nkunzi (Masoja Msiza), setting a target on their lives. Knowing how funny these two characters are, this planned robbery will definitely not be a conventional boring one!

Nkunzi is the most notorious gangster in KwaMashu – he buries people alive who steal from him or leave them in the freezer to die of the cold. If you steal from him and he finds out, there will be hell to pay. So why would these unexpected pairs take that risk? “Babekazi owes an insurance company R800 000 that they paid out for Gabisile’s (Baby Cele) death,” explains Thabo. “Now that Gabisile is back from the dead, Babekazi needs to pay back that money and she doesn’t have it. So the next best thing is to steal from the only rich person they both know in KwaMashu: Nkunzi.” Babekazi blackmails Mr. Mbatha – whom she’s squatting with – to help her and the unlikely duo get to work.
