Lindiwe Dikana’s hatred knows no bounds. While we’ve seen her doing dirty things in the past year, including lying and killing, we never thought she’d take things to a whole new level of disgusting.

In case you didn’t know, a few months ago on The River, the businesswoman tricked Refilwe residents into signing away rights to their land, with the false promise of building them new houses. Fast-forward to now, and Lindiwe has the right to take the land as it belongs to her. But we think she’s approaching this whole situation the wrong way.

She doesn’t care about the media nor about the impact the forced removals will have on her reputation. #TheRiver1Magic

In the last few episodes, we’ve seen Lindiwe forcing residents to evacuate their houses. They obviously refused to listen to her, but this made her even angrier and more determined to kick them out. The Khanyisa Diamonds owner forced Tshabalala to get the cops on her side, and forced residents to leave. On Friday, viewers watched as residents were literally thrown out of their homes, along with their furniture and all other possessions.

There goes Flo’s house. Is she also going to lose Walter? #TheRiver1Magic

While people have been losing their houses right in front of their eyes, others are seemingly losing their lives. As some community members were in tears after being thrown out of the homes they’ve been occupying for years, others were lying on the ground covered in blood. This makes us wonder if the cops were instructed to kill people or not? If so, Lindiwe has too much blood on her hands. Not that she cares. 

Will Zolani snitch on Lindiwe?

For as long as we can remember, Zolani and Lindiwe have worked together. Whatever dirty tricks Lindiwe has gotten up to, trust that Zolani was there to assist her.

Now that Mrs Dikana has shown that she doesn’t care about anybody but herself, her nephew has been left in a very tricky situation. After realising that his aunt will stop at nothing to get what she wants – even if it costs him his marriage – it looks as if Zolani is now considering turning his back against Lindiwe.

In a surprising turn of events, Zolani was seen chatting with his troublesome mother Veronica, who advised him to reveal all of Lindiwe’s secrets. Although it looks like he might actually be thinking about entertaining this idea, Zolani needs to remember that whatever he says about Lindiwe, he could also be heavily implicated.
