Background of the ‘Nandipha’ character

Nandipha’s father was a polygamist. He was wealthy, powerful, and painfully traditional. Which is why he pretty much banished Alex and his mom from the family when he discovered how Alex loved making dresses and wearing them occasionally.

Even though she kept it a secret, Nandipha admired her brother. But she towed the line. She was academically gifted and attended the best schools.

Eventually becoming a powerful Lawyer. And in the back of her mind she always believed she would one day reconcile with him after their father had passed away.

But she receives word that Alex has gone missing. She comes crushing into The House of Zwide, looking for her brother, and when all the evidence points to the fact that the Zwide’s were involved in her brother’s disappearance, she becomes the most dangerous enemy they have ever faced.
