The Scorpion is the evil leader of an underground criminal organization in Enugu. His latest operation involves the extortion of thousands of naira from important PNR officials in return for the safety of Dr Musa Umaru, the party’s presidential candidate.

Despite payment of the money, the Scorpion cannot be trusted and an ex-policeman, Chuka Ubaka, is called in to secure Umaru’s safety during the elections. But things begin to go badly wrong for Chuka when a top PNR official decides, for his own gain, to let the Scorpion kill Umaru, and Chuka has to take one the Scorpion’s outfit virtually single-handed.

We then flash back to 1961, before Kiki was born, and meet her mother, LaMsibi, and father, Gezani, who struggle to make a life for themselves as farmers in a small village in the Maphakane valley. Gezani is determined to ensure that his child has a better life than he has so he decides to have her educated. Gezani is a traditional Nguni who does not approve of Christianity and the foreign missionaries who bring it. However, he does appreciate the need for Swazi children to be able to read and write, and only missionary schools provide this education. Despite having convinced his father to disown her twenty years earlier when she converted to Christianity, Gezani seeks out his sister, Saraphina, a teacher at a missionary school, and asks that she takes in Kiki and sends her to school. Gezani then decides to leave his homestead and go back to working in the mines of Johannesburg in order to pay for Kiki’s education.
