Episode 6

The situation at the clinic is a bit calmer than before (with the help of the youth) but residents are still flocking in.   Residents are wary of the water supply after news of the outbreak fills the township through “twitter”.  Environmental officers are called into the clinic, and the outbreak is confirmed -  it is e-coli.

Meanwhile, Riri goes on her own investigation and finds  “ground zero” or source of the epidemic. She is both suspicious and concerned about her mother’s involvement in all this.

An agitated Thando has tried by all means to keep her pregnancy a secret from her sister Nokhanyo, but that is short-lived after a visit from the clinic’s CHWs, Riri and AB.
