Khanyisa Diamonds mine owner Lindiwe “Madlabantu” Dikana from The River, played by Sindi Dlathu, has had viewers on the edge of their seats with the tricks she’s had up her sleeve in the last couple of episodes.

Not so long ago, Nyakallo and Zweli tied the knot. They decided to go on what was supposed to be a honeymoon on The Blue Train but turned into a family trip instead, which included Andile, Emma and Veronica.

Little did the family know, they were also joined by Lindiwe, who said she would not be joining them but in the last few episodes has been making her presence felt, especially by Nyakallo whose sanity would later be questioned.

The Khanyisa Diamonds mine owner first tormented the second wife by hiding a fake snake in her room while she was getting dressed and in yesterday’s episode, Mrs Dikana decided to be Nyakallo’s literal nightmare.

Lindiwe, who wore a white gown with a veil and had gothic make-up on, waited for Nyakallo to be alone on the train when she ambushed the newly wedded wife who was very scared and started questioning if she was really seeing Lindiwe or she was in a trance.

This is a 180° turnaround for the first wife from a woman who gave her husband permission to take a second wife who she’s never been fond of, especially because she believes the second wife never had good intentions for her family and is after her husband’s fortune.

Twitter users were amused and glad that Lindiwe finally revealed who she truly is.

It’s unclear how Zweli and the rest of the family on the Blue Train will take Nyakallo’s reports of Lindiwe being on the train especially after last night’s episode.

We’ll have to stay tuned to see if the first wife will eventually get caught out.
