SHE TAKES HER RETRIBUTION OUT ON CHILDREN.
HEAVEN: Cindy Hart in ecstacy watching The Wizard Of Oz.
After her mother died by a gangster’s stray bullet, Cindy Hart decided that she was going to take revenge.
And the only way she could think of getting back at this scourge was to stop its seeds from being planted in the most fertile soil – the minds of children.
“I was so filled with hate and vengeance, and I used to express it in negative ways, like acting out at school, giving my teachers grief or yelling at my father.
I kept on asking questions, like ‘why do these things happen?’ or ‘Why do people hurt each other?'
"Growing up, I’d look out my window at 10pm and see children aged 7 to 8 years still walking around. It’s these same children that grow up and walk around at 11pm robbing and killing people.
It begins when no one’s there for them at 7 or 8 years old. As I grew older, my goal was clear. Cure the cause, not the symptom. And the cause is a neglected child,” she said.
Growing up in a hotbed of violence like Manenberg and experiencing tragedy the way Cindy has usually results in people getting drawn back into that cycle of violence.
But Cindy had too much spirit to become another ghetto statistic. “I wanted nothing less than to change the world, one child at a time!”
And she was well on her way, until Project H halted her plans.
But she’s not bitter at Jasper King and his creation for stealing her thunder. She appreciated that someone with such an abundant of talent was able to step in and uproot society’s weeds so convincingly, which could have easily become a burden for her given how crime was spiralling out of control pre-Project H.
Besides, she has enough drive to direct her energies into many of her other passions.
“Those I’m keeping a secret for now if you don’t mind,” she said.
TUSSLE: Cindy gives Inspector Sam Hart a piece of her mind.
Being such a strong-willed woman she thought she’d probably never meet a man who could be a match for her. That’s until she and Sam Hart butt heads.
“The Inspector was trying to get another notch on his belt by bullying one of my kids, one of the good guys. I couldn’t allow that.”
“It’s good we met in such a confrontational way; otherwise I wouldn’t have sensed that we belonged to no one else but each other.”

Cindy admits that their relationship got off to a rocky and tumultuous start as they both had serious personal issues that needed hammering out, but they both came to the conclusion that the answer to there internal problems lied with the wisdom through experience they both had to offer each other, and helping each other was what ultimately strengthened their relationship.
“We grew into the ultimate couple. I don’t think there are two people in the world more suited to each other than us. We just fit together perfectly.”
