Lindiwe fails grade 11
When she finds out from her parents that she has to repeat grade 11, Lindi thinks her life is over. Scandal!, weekdays at 7:30PM.
From cheating, running away from home and enduring a traumatic kidnapping, Lindiwe certainly ended 2016 on a bad note. To top it all, the love of her life doesn’t want anything to do with her.
And now, adding more salt to the open wound, she learns she’ll be repeating the same grade. Shame!
But what disturbs Lindiwe the most is the fact that she’ll be missing the matric dance, and that her friends will be ahead of her. She then breaks down and cries, saying her life is over.
Mlungisi encourages her to look on the brighter side of things. He tells her she could’ve been expelled from school, but she wasn’t. He comforts her by saying that failing grade 11 is a small price to pay and she must embrace that.
But Lindi is seriously traumatised by the bad news. No words seem to comfort her.
