Just when you thought things couldn’t get more twisted on The River, Angelina decides to move in with the Mokoenas. Yes, you read that right. Even though they’re not together, Angelina, who has a son with Cobra, now lives with his family. After he paid damages for their son Keitumetsi, Angelina probably saw this as the perfect way to get back into Cobra’s life. She took the baby to his house and told them that she’d also be staying with them. How rude and disrespectful!

Now this will definitely cause a lot of tension between Cobra and Paulina. The worst part is that the two lovebirds have decided to give their relationship another try, even though their wedding has been called off. It looks like Paulina also wants to support her man, even if that means becoming a stepmother – she loves him and is prepared to be a part of his life no matter what. Will Angelina’s latest move upset Paulina? Or will she stick by her man despite the drama? This should be very interesting to watch.

The Dikana kids fall for a scammer

Things are now back to normal in the Dikana home. Lindiwe, who was accused of mistreating Nomonde, has made peace with her family and to show them just how much she loves her husband and children, she bought them tickets to Kenya. The family took a much-needed vacation to celebrate the year and to form a stronger bond.

What we didn’t see coming, however, is Andile, Mbali and Nomonde bonding with the same man. The guy, who works at the resort that they’re currently in, made sure that he sells each one of them a sad story just to get money from them. They all fell for his charm and actually believed that they held a special place in his heart. They were even willing to part with thousands of rands just to make this guy happy.

Fortunately for them, Zolani came to the rescue and exposed the guy, revealing he had been playing all three of them. Imagine you and your siblings falling for the same man? Now that’s a bit dramatic. They were so embarrassed after this was revealed to them. At least they didn’t end up losing money in the process. Rather have a broken heart than end up being broke, right?

Walter and Flora are getting married

Well, this is something we didn’t see coming! Walter and Flora have decided to take their relationship to the next level. Sis’ Flo made the announcement during Christmas lunch at the Mokoenas. She said they don’t want to cohabit, they want to do things right instead. This is quite a surprise as their relationship is fairly new. We guess you can’t stand in the way of true love! Flora asked her bestie Malefu to be her bridesmaid. What a lovely surprise! We cannot wait to see what she will look like as a bride.

You can keep up with the Mokoenas and Dikanas on The River, right here on Showmax. New episodes air 15 minutes after the DStv broadcast.
