Mlilo death The River

The recent episode of The River saw a shocking turn of events as Lindiwe (Sindi Dlathu) unleashed her dark side and took revenge by brutally murdering Mlilo Hlophe (Vuyo Biyela).

This comes after Mlilo and his brother, Nkanyiso (Unathi Mkhize) set out to kill Lindiwe but their plan backfired and she managed to turn the tables on them.

In a twisted turn of events, Lindiwe shot Mlilo multiple times before stabbing him to death. This act was the culmination of a long-standing feud between Lindiwe and the Hlophes, who had killed her nephew Zolani (Lawrence Maleka). With the stakes higher than ever before, both sides are now brewing something ominous.

As we bid farewell to Mlilo, let’s take a moment to reflect on his top moments on the telenovela.

Tweeps had plenty to say about Mlilo’s death:
