It’s been four seasons of greatness and our national treasure Jerry Maake has remained the image of all that is good and true in the world of drugs and dirty cops. It’s so hard to say goodbye to this community stalwart and it comes as no surprise that his last living act was saving a life
When we met Jerry in Season one, he was a widower trying to raise his daughter (Amo) and criminal son (Mogape).
His journey with the Khoza’s would collide after his son got paid to kill Harriet’s husband, he was later found dead to cover up their tracks.

His obsession with catching Harriet and her family would be the last thing he would do to honour his son’s memory. Over the years we’ve seen so many close calls for the Khoza’s due to Maake’s dedication to the streets of Tembisa and making vengeance.
Jerry has endured more pain than others, having buried two sons and a brother Roy, but he was able to overcome the darkest times in his life without making it to the dark side. That’s why this character was so iconic!
