When Sadina employed Sheila in her firm, she was least prepared for the events that followed and so was her husband when he invited her to dinner. More
Sheila Maseno and Irene Masa have a lot in common. Both are well-educated ambitious beautiful women, but for unclear reasons, none is able to sustain a relationship with a man for long. Even as Masa believes that her academic credentials are intimidating men, Sheila thinks most men are liars and double dealers and her extraordinary beauty intimidates them.
Masa’s mother, Henrietta Muntari, runs a computer-assembling firm. No sooner does Masa join the company than she hurriedly seduces Maneno, one of her mother’s employees, into a romantic relationship. But because Masa is aware of Maneno’s indifference towards her, she secretly decides to bond their relationship by using trickery to get pregnant.
When their wedding is only three months away, Sheila joins the company and manages to convince Maneno that she is the right woman for him. But to his shock, Masa reveals to him that she is pregnant.
When Maneno decides to leave her and Masa’s mother later learns that her daughter is pregnant with his child, she sees him as a cold-blooded traitor. She advises her daughter to abort the pregnancy, which she does with fatal results. She bleeds to death. Henrietta puts the blame for her death squarely on Maneno. Although thereafter she resists the urge to avenge her daughter’s death for a long time, she hardly anticipated the crushing blow that ultimately compels her to action.
