[At the attorney’s offices.]
Nomusa: I am really sorry, Sir, to just come without phoning you first.
Attorney: No, no problem Madam, I’m your lawyer and you have the right to visit me at any time.
Nomusa: Thanks, Sir.
Attorney: So what can I do for my beloved client?
Nomusa: I need to change my will.
Attorney: Oh, that’s weird. Is everything OK, ma’am?
Nomusa: I found my son. I want him to take control of all my belongings when I die.
Attorney: Wow! That’s great, ma’am.
Nomusa: So, can we do it now?
Attorney: It’s fine, we can do it now. This is a camera, you know it. So you are going to watch the camera and tell it your will and testament.
Nomusa: OK, that’s great.
Attorney: On my mark, get set, ready and action.
Nomusa: (recording her will on camera) My name is Nomusa Ledger. I am thirty-eight years old and I want to change my previous beneficiary and appoint my son, Lucky Nzimande, to be my new beneficiary for all my belongings. Lucky my son, I know that this is a big step for you but my legacy is your legacy. I don’t want anyone else to take it from you; so I appoint you to take care of everything that is in my name. And to you my husband, Sham, I am leaving nothing in your name, as you do not deserve a cent from my legacy. Lucky my son, I love you and you are everything to me. Thank you.
Nomusa: Yes, Done, Sir.
Attorney: OK. I will take this footage to our systems controler and then I will send you a copy first thing tomorrow.
Nomusa: Thank you, Sir.
Attorney: Congratulation regarding your son.
Nomusa: Thank you, Sir. And it’s nice doing business with you.
Attorney: Likewise, as always.
Nomusa: I better leave now, Mr Advocate, it’s late.
[Early in the morning, the next day. At Nomusa and Sham’s house]
Sham: Babe, where were you last night? I tried to phone you several times but your phone was putting me straight to your voicemail.
Nomusa: I am sorry my husband. I was with my cousin trying to make her understand why I did what I did to my grandma. And besides, I needed space away from this house.
Sham: I know it’s difficult, babe, but I think it’s for the best.
Nomusa: Ja, it’s for the best.
Sham: Babe, I think you should take leave until you heal this wound. For the mean time I will be your acting CEO.
Nomusa: No, no Sham. I am not leaving my company to anyone, not to you and not to anyone.
Sham: No babe, you are not leaving your company but you are taking a short, paid leave, until you get better.
Nomusa: Sham, I said no. Read my lips no, period.
Sham: Babe, I love you and I will make sure that no one touches your company while I’m acting CEO.
Nomusa: Sham, please don’t force me to do something that I don’t want to.
Sham: OK, OK love. I understand.
Nomusa: Good, now I need to shower so that I can go to my meetings.
Sham: It’s OK, babes.
[There is a knock at the door]
Nomusa: Who’s that? Let me go and open before I go to a shower.
Sham: No babes, go and shower I will sort him or her out.
Nomusa: OK Sham, I will see you when I finish my shower.
[Nomusa leaves the room and Sham goes to open the door]
Sham: (opens the door) Come in and how can I help you?
Messenger: Is this the house of Mrs Nomusa Ledger-Nzimande?
Sham: Yes, but in future you call my wife with my surname not Ledger or Nzimande, understood?
Messenger: I am sorry, Sir, so what is your surname?
Sham: It’s Jacobs; my name is Sham Jacobs, Nomusa’s husband.
Messenger: Nice to meet you Mr Jacobs. My name is Stan Vaal, a messenger from Kwaal Attorneys.
Sham: What can I do for you, Mr Messenger, in my house?
Messenger: Mr Chris, your wife’s lawyer, sent me here to deliver your wife’s new will and testament’s paper work.
Sham: (shocked) What, are you mad?
Messenger: No sir, she made it yesterday. Please sign on the dotted line to confirm that you got your wife’s file.
Sham: OK, (as he signs) done.
Messenger: Please, Sir, tell your wife that Mr Chris will send the copy the will video first thing tomorrow morning.
Sham: OK, you may leave now.
[Sham closes the door after the messenger leaves.]
Sham: Oh no, Nomusa has taken me out of her will, just like that? No, this can’t happen. Oh let me phone Glen.
[He dials Glen’s number, the phone rings]
Glen: (as he answer the phone) Hey my beloved friend, what can I do for you?
Sham: Glen, things are getting out of control. I need to see you now in my office immediately.
Glen: Are you OK, Sham?
Sham: No Glen, Nomusa is trying to cut me out of her legacy with immediate effect.
Glen: (surprised) No, you joking!
Sham: I am telling you, Glen. Please meet me in my office now.
Glen: Ok, I am on my way.
