You might’ve known her as Thandaza in SABC2’s Muvhango, but when Sindi Dlathu took the role of ruthless businesswoman Lindiwe Dikana in Mzansi Magic’s The River, she completely rebranded and showed off her talent.
It’s no surprise Sindi took the Safta for the best actress in a telenovela at the recent awards – which was broadcast online due to the lockdown.
In celebration of her huge achievement, we put together five of her most memorable scenes in the popular telenovela. Whether she’s being her usual ruthless self, a sexy wife to her hubby or a loving mother, Lindiwe nails it! She could be SA’s most-loved villain on our small screens.
1.When she found out her daughter, Mbali, was dead.
2.She seduces Zweli after their divorce.
3.Finding out her daughter, Tumi, killed her other daughter, Mbali, and killing her.
4.Showing up at her ex-husband’s wedding as the bride.
5.This list would be incomplete without a scene between Lindiwe and her nephew, Zolani.Their chemistry is unmatched!
If there’s one thing the lockdown took away from us is the acceptance speech Sindi would’ve given us – whether she was going to bless us with her singing voice again, or thank her supporters and friends, we certainly would’ve loved to see it!
