Tshedza Pictures has left The River fans wondering about lead actor, Lawrence Maleka’s fate, as it seems that Zolani might be heading to prison for murder.
1Magic took to Twitter on Thursday, 21 October 2021, to share the emotional goodbye scene between Zolani, played by Lawrence Maleka, and the rest of the Dikana clan on The River. This week’s episodes have been the emotional rollercoaster of watching the aftermath of Zolani’s heat-of-the-moment murder of Zithulele Duze, played by Makhaola Ndebele. For the past week, Zolani’s fate, as to whether he is heading to prison or not, has been the big question within the world of the story.
On the other hand, viewers are wondering if this is the last they will see of Zolani on their screens, more so considering how the on-screen chemistry between him and Lindiwe, played by Sindi Dlathu, is part of the reason that many watch the show. The two have given social media some of the best memes and gifs together, hence the idea of Maleka leaving the show has many viewers inquiring whether this is the end of Zolani on The River.
No official word has been shared yet on Maleka’s departure. Therefore, viewers have held out hope that the arrival of Sandra Stein, played by Shannon Esra, will mark the conclusion of this storyline, with Zolani still at home at the Dikana mansion. The River airs every weeknight on 1Magic, DStv channel 103.
