Deborah is losing her grip in Thabazimbi. Maki isn’t selling as much contraband as she believes she will be punished by God. Has Masabata’s influence has extended that far?
Lockdown S4 serves up more prison smackdowns
It’s a constant battle for survival at the Thabazimbi Women’s Correctional Facility and only one law prevails here — do whatever you need to survive. These ladies have taken that mantra to heart and for them, it’s all about self-preservation. They’re tough, they’re ruthless, and they know how to wield their power.

Megan: Tyson the Terrible
With the odds stacked against her from childhood, Tyson (Lorcia Cooper) was bound to end up either in prison or the grave. She’s a classic case of the oppressed becoming the oppressor and takes it upon herself to “initiate” new inmates by raping them.
Tyson’s power lies in numbers. As the leader of the fearsome gang of inmates, her reign of terror was legendary, even among the guards. The wardens let her be because she had the dirt on every one of them and knew all about their corrupt deeds. Hers was a position of advantage that all the inmates yearned for, and she built an empire on a robust trade in illegal cigarettes and contraband. She ruled with fear and an iron fist, commanding a blind loyalty from her followers that made her invincible and untouchable … almost.
Tyson’s house of cards came tumbling down, however, when she herself was drugged and raped, by a man! Then came a baby in a not so golden carriage, and the last title Tyson wanted was “Mommy”. She gave up the child that would forever remind her of her attacker and, because she’s mastered the art of manipulation, she’s now back as the ringleader of Thabazimbi’s free enterprise and smuggling trade.
