The River continues to be one of South Africa’s biggest and most watched Soapies (Telenovela) And we’re here to fill you in on more action and Drama to come during the month of March. We’re all those who are already fans can’t wait to see what’s coming up, but just in case you’re are not familiar with this leading Telenovela: HERE’S A BRIEF BACKGROUND ON THE RIVER
The River tells the story of a mining magnate, Lindiwe (Dlathu) whose mine is seemingly out of minerals to mine. Facing financial ruin, she has to do unspeakable things in order to keep the façade that the mine is doing well. Needless to say, most of her family members are unaware about the crisis and she only has her nephew, Zolani, (a stern, almost too serious Lawrence Maleka) as her confidante. He knows the real Lindiwe and the lengths she will go to protect her wealth, lengths that saw her murder two people in cold blood in the first episode.
The juxtaposition of the haves and have-nots is typical South Africa and shows the intersection of the two societies and where they all meet- at work. There’s interesting themes at play here already and while not new, they could result in some emotional scenes that would bring out some great acting from the cast.
