She has been in fear since she came to stay with the Maputla family as there have been scandals happening in her presence. Firstly it was the scandal of the Maputla’s finding out that Zamokuhle Seakamela was John Maputla’s son. Maputla’s wife shot Zamokuhle and her mother at the hospital on the day of the DNA results which proved that indeed Zamokuhle was Maputla’s son.


Meikie John’s wife was arrested for what she did then came out on bail. She continued attending the trial until she was put back in prison. Before she left she was approached by Sikes who is her daughter in-laws ex, the father of Noah Mokgadi’s son. Sikes wanted to involve her in dodgy dealings but she refused then Sikes held them hostage which was what made Mapitsi fear for her life and her son’s life. Mapitsi called her husband Thabo and told him everything then Thabo came and took them with him oversees where he is currently staying.

Mapitsi is a very respectful person, loving, kind and caring. She is a daughter who listens to her elders, be it her uncle Alfred Magongwa who is always on her case, telling her to leave her marriage and focus on her career.
