Who's the biggest loser now?

Gabi decided to surprise Mandla at work As she arrived at the police station she spot¬ted the same BMW parked outside. She rushed inside and found Mandla at his desk.

“Mandla, is Joe here? This is urgent!” She looked around anxiously.

“Gabi! Hey, babes! Listen, I know you just got here but I’m afraid I have to rush.

“Buy yourself something nice to eat from Makokete’s across the road. We’ll talk about it at home. Duty calls!”

Mandla opened his wallet, gave Gabi R100, picked up his car keys and dashed out of the office.

Coming out of the station Gabi saw peo¬ple inside the BMW through the half-open tinted windows. Just then Joe came out of the station, too, and was picked up by a cab. After he’d gone, the new owner of the BMW came out of the station and surveyed the car with satisfaction. He was so pleased that he didn’t notice Gabi standing there.

“Excuse me sir, which way are you going? Would you mind dropping me at the nearest mall?” Gabi asked politely.

“Of course! Let’s go, lady,” he replied.

“Nice car, it must have cost a fortune,” Gabi said as they took off.

“My sister, for years I’ve wanted a car like this but I couldn’t afford it. And today I was lucky enough to find it at a reasonable price,” the driver replied smugly.

“The man you bought the car from, what’s his name?” Gabi asked.

“Mike. What a nice, generous guy. My cousin was right about him. If you noticed earlier, he was with me just before you came,” the proud car owner said.

Gabi realised the poor guy had no idea he had bought a stolen car. After being dropped off at the mall Gabi immediately called Man¬dla, who promised he’d call

That evening, she tried to tell Mandla what she’d found out but he kept on inter¬rupting her.

“Babes, I’ve been preoccupied the past few weeks and I’ve neglected you. I’m sorry about that,” Mandla said, embracing her.

“About the car story . . .”

“Shhh. Please, let’s not talk about that now,” Mandla whispered as he kissed her on the lips.

The following day Gabi wrote down the whole story and sent it, along with her

After that many things happened in quick succession: Mandla was shocked and hu¬miliated to find himself under investigation when it became clear his friend Joe was the mastermind of the gang and had corrupted many cops.

Mandla told the grim officers who ques¬tioned him that he thought Joe was a kasi businessman with lots of connections.

They didn’t believe him and he was suspended. After a disciplinary hearing he was fired.

Joe was arrested and is in prison awaiting trial. Most of his gang members are too. Mandla is selling tomatoes and onions in the market and Gabisile is no longer engaged to him.

She moved in with her chomma Monica and is now happily making a name for herself as a reporter on a community radio station.
