Pastor Mbatha (Thaboka Mnguni) is quite the shady character, and whatever he touches turns into a scam or scheme. Which is no surprise then that his search for a Mamfundisi (preacher’s wife) is less about finding love and more about finding a cash cow.
Mbatha’s prayer for Mamfundisi left him quite frustrated. He’s eager to find someone for a few reasons, all sinister.
He wants to show off a wife, so she has to be very beautiful. He wants someone with money so that the money will be his to do what he wants with it – he’s always trying to get rich quickly.
Plotting Mbatha soon gets the perfect platform to advertise his vacancy for a Mamfundisi.
Mbatha doesn’t even feel an ounce of shame when he goes on live radio and invites hopefuls to “come for an audition to be his wife.
They have to bring bank statements too! Radio host Gabisile (Baby Cele) invites Mbatha and Pastor Gwala (Menzi Biyela) to speak about their faith and their churches, which is when Mbatha spots this golden chance.
This upsets Gabisile. It’s not why she asked them to be on her show. Pastor Gwala is busy with sermons and verses on the show, which is chowing his time to carry out his mission. Mbatha truly is a menace!
But all is not lost.
