Ernie and Kodili are best friends and as close as brothers but their mothers hate each other and because of this show pure disdain for each other’s sons despite the love their son’s have for one another. It all began when Ernie’s mother married his father. Kodili’s mother claimed that Ernie’s mother had snatched her man and married him. She blames Ernie’s mother for her condition in life. She is resentful that she married a poor man and remained in the village in poverty, while Ernie’s mother, due to marrying a wealthy man had the benefit of an educated and well travelled son to shower her with gifts on his visits home. Their sons are grown and decades have passed but the feud between the two women continues and ultimately tears both families apart.
