Mzansi’s top actress Sindi Dlathu (Lindiwe Dikana) finally exposed. Things just took an unexpected turn on The River 1 Magic – it appears fan-favourite and villain Lindiwe Dikana’s days of doing as she pleases and getting away with it could be coming to an end.
After killing her daughter Tumi in season 3’s finale to save her herself, fans wondered how they would keep the storyline lit after losing a prominent member of the cast – reviews that followed labelled the drama as dull and boring up until recently.
The writers have of telenovela have so far managed to keep Sindi Dlathu’s character almost invincible, as she’s killed, lied, and manipulated many, including her commissioner husband, but somehow still manages to rise above the law.
Following long and intentional investigations, Lindiwe’s husband, Zweli Dikana finally found out that she was the lady spotted leaving Elvis room on the CCV footage on the day he was killed. Shocked, disappointed, and hurt by these revelations, Zweli confronted her about this and Lindiwe would of course deny it, until she finally cracked and admitted to some of the accusations, but not all and before he could finish his questioning, the show ended. Do you think Lindiwe would finally be exposed this time around?
