Nkunzi’s trust in Sebonelo as his successor crumbled when he discovered that his own son had been involved in money laundering, causing him to lose everything. Unbeknownst to Nkunzi, Sebonelo had been using his position of power in Nkunzi’s business to carry out illicit financial activities. As a result, the police uncovered the truth, leading to the closure of all Nkunzi’s enterprises, leaving him devastated.
The heartbreak for Nkunzi lies in the fact that Sebonelo was once the chosen heir to his vast fortune. Nkunzi had even taken it upon himself to mentor and groom Sebonelo for this future role. However, Sebonelo’s betrayal as both a son and a business partner shattered Nkunzi’s faith in him.
Consequently, Nkunzi made the difficult decision to disown Sebonelo, recognizing that he had failed him in multiple ways as a father and a trusted confidant. Sebonelo was left with no choice but to forge his own path separate from Nkunzi’s legacy.
