Umgulukudu (1980's)


When Sipho and John go visit Uncle Joshua for the holidays, they accidentally get involved in rescuing Thandi, the local mayor’s daughter, who has been taken hostage by an escaped criminal known as Benson. With John’s bravery and Sipho’s genius, the boys work together to defeat the convict at his own game, ultimately saving the day and making a new friend in Thandi in the process.
This fast-paced tale of youth, crime and adventure would quickly spawn the 1985 sequel Thunder Valley.
