It's very rare on The River 1 Magic that lead actress Sindi Dlauthu's Lindiwe Dikana finds her match. However, after this evening's episode, the Khaniysa Diamonds owner could have met someone who's not intimidated by her financial powers in Tumi's new boyfriend Mabutho.

After her daughter, Tumi had an affair with the very same Mabutho, who is Lindani's cousin, Lindiwe wasn't really impressed. However, she was at least happy with the fact that it ended the very little hope Tumi and Lindani had of saving their marriage. Lindiwe was never really happy with Mabutho's financial or social status.

But getting Lindani out of the picture didn't really remove all of the flaws she saw in Tumi's life. Just a few days after signing the divorce papers Tumi has publicly confessed his love for Mabutho and is really to take things to the next life.

In the latest episode, the Dikana's invited Tumi's new boyfriend over for Dinner and despite countless insults from Lindiwe about his poor background, he stood his ground. In fact, some would say that he put the mine owner is her place on a few occasions. Even Zolani was out of words.
