The Bodyguard [Dembe Zuma | Hisham Tawfiq] #10: "He is the light in the darkness. Living proof that there is another way. That life can be good."

Dembe Zuma is former freedom fighter from South Sudan. He was born the youngest son of Samwel Zuma. When Dembe's father reported a number of low-ranking operatives of a poaching organization to the authorities, the cartel killed Dembe's father, mother and siblings and sold him to human traffickers. He spent eight years in the world of human trafficking and was enslaved until the age of 14, when Reddington found him half-dead and chained to a pipe in the basement of a brothel in Nairobi. Reddington took care of him, nursed him back to health and made sure he got an education. Dembe eventually got a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, learned to speak four languages fluently and learned six others well enough to get by. Dembe has a daughter, Isabella and a granddaughter.

"I know what it feels like to be seen as less than human, a thing transported for money."






"You know, twenty nine years ago, in Sierra Leone, there was a farmer named Samwel Zuma, who had the audacity to identify several low level Mombasa operatives to local authorities. The cartel massacred the entire family. All but the youngest son; he was sold to a local ring of flesh peddlers. The majority of children in those circumstances don’t last longer than nine months. He survived eight years. He was fourteen when I found him. Too old, too tall, too angry and dangerous to be of any further value. He was left to die, chained to a standpipe in a squalored brothel in Nairobi. Branded, barely alive, so I took him. Made him well, saw to his education; he graduated university with a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature. He speaks four languages fluently and can get by on half a dozen more.
He is splendid. His name is Dembe. Dembe Zuma."
Raymond Reddington | Episode 2x06

"God only gives you burdens you can carry."
"Whatever happens, we do it together."


the reasons
Because even though he barely speaks we love him so much.
Because he will be a series regular in s3!
Because he conveys so much emotion without speaking a word.
Because he knows when to tell Red how it is.
Because he likes ice cream when he gets the munchies.
Because he puts the safety and needs of others before his own.
Because he is a badass whether he's in action or standing still
Because he's loyal to Red.
Because he will protect Red at all cost.
Because he is brave and can be threatening when he needs to be.
Because he's got the best intentions for everyone.
Because he is not afraid to speak his mind towards Red.
Because he went as far to leave Red to prove who was behind his poisoning.
Because he will never leave Red, no matter what.
Because he only has three people in his life. His daughter, granddaughter and Red.



"Just Dembe. Like Prince or Madonna."

Thanks for the the new one

I so hope for some good moments for him... With Red being sick I think we'll see a great deal of him.

I'm so impressed with him as well and this episode was just fantastic. And again he would have betrayed Red. Although the imam told him not to do so.

Hisham playing with drones Awesome.
