PREDICTED STORYLINES IN SEASON FIVE OF THE RIVER' Maleka's character, Zolani exited the show after his character was sentenced to prison for the murder of Zithulele Duze (Makhaola Ndebele).

--

1Magic shared an emotional goodbye scene on Twitter between Maleka and the Dikanas on 21 October.

Fans are also hoping that villain characters, Lindiwe Dikana and Mohumi will start dating next season.

Lindiwe and Mohumi have been getting along recently since Mohumi played by SepUtla Sebogodi joined the telenovela.

Audiences feel that Lindiwe needs to teach her husband, Zweli a lesson as he's been cheating on her since season two.

Lindiwe and Mohumi previously dated and conceived a daughter, Tumi Mokoena-Dikana (Larona Moagi) who died at the beginning of season four.

The pair have similar personalities, have more in common, and are both driven.

Mohumi's friend, Cobra Mokoena, has also suggested that he and Lindiwe should have an affair behind Zweli's back.

--

The community knows that Lindiwe (Sindi Dlathu) killed him by the river and won't let history to repeat itself.

The TVSA Friday, 31 December teaser hints that Zolani's wife, Emma (Lunathi Mampofu) is going to cross into the new year with someone close to her.

The headline reads:

It's in his kiss?

The teaser reads:

Emma decides to do something that could land her in hot water.
