Romeo Medupe

About the Character

The apple of his mother’s eye, Romeo is an IT wiz who has attended the best private schools. He was expelled, in his senior certificate year, from a private school for attacking and seriously injuring another pupil who had crossed him.  Romeo never went back to school finishing his high school career through home schooling.  Romeo is an extremely bright, charismatic young man. He may appear to play by the rules and respect authority, but he only does so to serve his own needs. He has an air of superiority about him and he is very careful about who gets to see the 'real him'. It was this willingness not to play by the rules that led him to lose his stake in his mother’s hotel, the Newtonian. Romeo meets and is intrigued by Lindiwe and they start a relationship. Is this ever-lasting love?
