Its OVER! Lawrence Maleka (Zolani) officially leaves The River and Here’s why

South African actor and television presenter Lawrence Maleka is one of Mzansi’s finest talents and one of the original cast members of The River 1 Magic.

Zolani is Lindiwe Dikana’s adopted son and his right-hand man. The two are very close. He has a desirable arrogance about him, but he has done a lot of horrible things in his life. Lindiwe has taught Zolani about the dark dealings of the mining work.




The cast of The River 1 Magic recently held a special farewell party for Zolani Dlamini.

1Magic’s flagship show which was launched with the channel in 2018, made its impact beyond our borders; being adopted in several other African countries, including Nigeria and Angola.

“At M-Net Local Entertainment Channels we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to the cast and crew of The River for a memorable five years. Their hard work, dedication, and brilliance have led to the telenovela’s success. The final season is going to be the show’s most epic one yet. The drama will be bigger and better, setting the stage for the ultimate finale,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
