There are a few things you can afford to miss this week but 1Magic’s award-winning telenovela, The River, is certainly not one of them…

From enemies making unexpected returns to the revelation of a secret that will knock you off your seat.

Last Friday’s cliff-hanger episode saw Lindiwe’s surprise party turn into a nightmare after she was ushered in by a gun-toting thug, Mohumi Ditshwene, much to the shock of her family and friends.

The surprise villain and Ditshwene share a long and painful history that spans decades and if you know Lindiwe well, you know it’s not a good one.

True to her manipulative and devious ways she framed Mohumi for stealing dynamite and he was sentenced to 15 years but served 10 for good behaviour. The former Khanyisa Diamonds employee turned worker’s union secretary is now back and looking to exact revenge on Lindiwe and her family. But, his pursuit for revenge will also be coupled with the revelation of a secret that leaves Lindiwe’s family reeling.

After three seasons, we’ve got a clear idea of the kind of person Lindiwe is and the lengths she’s willing to go to in order to protect her family and loved ones. But, what else will we learn about this baddie this week?


Make sure you tune in!

The River 3 airs on 1Magic (DStv 103) from Mondays to Fridays at 20h00.
