Scandal audience ratings soar as the net spins tighter around Mthunzi. On Wednesday 27 March, 2019 over 6 million viewers tuned in to see Romeo and Chi-Chi get their revenge on Mthunzi! This is a record number for e.tv’s primetime soapie in the Golden Hour between 7pm and 8pm.
This Scandal story has been building since Mthunzi first appeared on our screens in June 2018, and it seems that the sly businessman always has a plan to get out of a sticky situation! In recent weeks, the relentless Romeo and his confidant Chi-Chi have managed to deliver a few blows to Mthunzi’s plans.
“The Mthunzi story has excited and frustrated viewers, because it is perhaps too much like real life, where powerful criminals seem to get away with it all. But this story has many more twists before those who are guilty will be brought to justice,” says Supervising Producer Ilse van Hemer.
“What will soon be revealed on Scandal is what the true reason is behind Mthunzi’s desire for vengeance, and it will not be what anyone expects, least of all Xolile, Chumani and Romeo. Keep watching, I’m sure you will not be disappointed”
In the next few weeks, the viewers will learn more about Mthunzi’s past, and his motivation behind bringing down the Langa family. We will also see how far a matriarch will go to hide secrets from her past to protect her family’s future.
