Undoubtedly one of South Africa's most beloved and well-known actors of his time, Jet Novuka is making his first debut on your favourite telenovela, The River.

Jet plays Walter Sotshongaye, Lindiwe’s nemesis who after being betrayed by Lindiwe, has been incarcerated for 15 years. But his time behind bars is coming to an end, and he wants blood.

Here’s a little bit more about his character and his relationship with Lindiwe:

Just over 15 years ago, Lindiwe and Walter, a man who was very popular in the township of Refilwe; decided to join forces and start Khanyisa Diamonds. The vision was always clear for Lindiwe, she needed to get a man who is influential in the grassroots level, and get the people to agree to have a mining plant in their community. And with Walter, someone that they trusted, it would make life so much easier.

Before that, Walter had always been in the picture. Having dated Lindiwe for some time, they’ve always had a volatile relationship. But as the old saying “the love of money is the root of all evil” proved to be truer than ever, when Lindiwe wanted everything to herself.

Look out for his debut on The River tonight at 20:00.
