‘Skeem Saam’ Review: Meikie Maputla deserves to be sentenced to jail

It seems Meikie’s (Harriet Manamela) well-master-minded plan to escape prison is not working out for her.    

She convinced her son, Leeto to hire her doppelganger to replace her in prison so that she doesn’t have to serve time.

Their plan was exposed by her daughter-in-law, Mapitsi (Mogau Motlhatswi) who informed her husband of her plans.      

  • Meikie’s testimonies about how she made the Seakamelas lives a living hell could land her behind bars because they’re very strong.   
  • Viewers are also perplexed by her lawyer, Advocate Bopape’s (Patrick Bokaba) way of questioning in court.   
  • They think Bopape is secretly throwing Meikie under the bus as he wants her to pay for her crimes.   
  • They believe that KG Mathabatha could’ve done a far better job than Bopape and are nervous about her outcome.  
  • Meikie is on trial for attempting to murder Kwaito Seakamela (Clemnet Maosa) and his mother, Mantuli Seakamela (Dieketseng Mnisi).
  • This is the second time she used her gun, she also shot and killed Tumishang (Mothusi Mogano) in self-defense last year.
