She came to ruin Mlilo’s life.
Characters of the week - Nthabi and Mlilo

We got the biggest and most amazing surprise when we found out Big Brother’s star, Thato Immaculate will be joining #TheRiver but we didn’t know her role would turn out to be on that’s out to ruin Mlilo’s life.

She has been putting on one stellar performance that it got the audience very frustrated and wanting her to be punished for her actions. It all started when the Hlophe siblings decided to go out and grab drinks when Mlilo spotted the gorgeous Nthabi at the bar but what started out as flirty and cute ended up as a rape case.


It could have been avoided simply b Nthabi stating that she expected to be paid after sex before Mlilo even took her home but demanding R30 000 after the fact came as a shock to him. Denying is what made her open a case of rape against him knowing very well that he did no such thing and the harassment and anger from women started.


Not everyone in the family was behind him but eventually everyone (read Khwezi) got behind him and made sure that he receives the support he needs. Nomafu didn’t take it lying down.

She had the whole day to gather Nthabi


If Nthabi has a thousand haters, that would be all of the Riverians because they are not having none of it.
