Get to know Mdala from Scandal
Scandal introduced a unique role that will shake up the show’s storyline. Mdala is a gangster who was convicted because of Nhlamulo’s deal with the police. For now, it seems that Mdala is unaware that Nhlamulo was the one who sold him out to the police but still, the way he looks at Nhlamulo’s wife Lindiwe looks is a bit sinister. The character Mdala offered Lindiwe a managerial job in his club as he’s planning on expanding, and we’re yet to see the motive behind the move. The character Nhlamulo is uncertain about the job offer, and a professional association with Mdala as he also offered Nhlamulo an illegal side gig for money Nhlamulo could use to reopen his programming school.
Nhlamulo’s baby mama Vuvu, on the other hand, has been appearing on the most recent episodes, and Mdala’s presence and work relations with Lindiwe could push Vuvu back into Nhlamulo’s arms which could taint the marriage of Nhlamulo and Lindiwe. More drama could unfold if Mdala finds out about Nhlamulo’s betrayal, and Lindiwe’s life could be in danger, seeing how dangerous Mdala is said to be.
