Gomora: Pretty’s father Raped MamSonto.
We have always wondered why she doesn’t love and like her daughter (Pretty) since the start of the Show. Connie Chueme who plays as the villainous, Shebeen queen MamSonto and a mother to Pretty (Siyasanga Papu) and Nthati (Katlego Danke) has never shied away from showing her daughters who her favourite is. At some point, we can even speculated that Pretty was just dramatic and that she is just jealous of her sister Nthati who is prettier, thinner and more successful than she is.
It turns out that Pretty’s suspicions about her mother’s hatred towards her were true. MamSonto revealed last week that she actually hates Pretty because of her father.There was no dry eyes after that scene.
If you thought you didn’t like MamSonto before, this scene would have made you hate her. It was a relatable and disgustingly scene that triggered a lot of Gomora followers. She even showed herself; a deceitful, cunning, vengeful mother who doesn’t care about daughter’s feelings.
What exactly happened to MamSonto and Pretty’s father? Well the way MamSonto described it, she said Pretty reminds her of the man who left her with a bunch of kids, he did things to her that she didn’t want them (Nthati and Pretty) to know about. It was something big because MamSonto is a strong woman who hardly gets emotional, even over big problems liking someone. Sheis a criminal mastermind and a dirty car thief.
It triggered that lot of mothers who have treated their kids and punished them because of their fathers. It sparked debates among children who are now adults; who have lived and are still living with their mother’s/fathers anger towards them. Most of them are still reeling unlike Pretty they have no answers from their parents.
What happened for her to change, It toughened her and she had to take care of her kids by herself after he left. The truth is that MamSonto was raped by Pretty’s father. Unfortunately, some people do not understand rape as being possible in a marriage, but we know it happens and the emotional scars are there to prove that it happened.
She was depressed,possibly suicidal, and Pretty reminds her of her past pains that sh’s trying to bury daily.
