The River’s talented actress, Nokuthula Ledwaba who plays the role of Angelina just met her match; Morena Mokoena…her step-son from Cobra’s first relationship. 

We first met Cobra’s troubled son, Morena who arrived with his mother a while ago, his mother described him as a troublemaking teenager who doesn’t listen to anyone. He’s strategic and emotionally intelligent. He walks, talks, and is the role and audiences love him.

Morena stole from the residents of Refilwe and almost lost his life when he was stabbed by a gang in Refilwe who wanted revenge. Though his relationship with Cobra was rough, the two have now made-up this season and they have the perfect relationship. 

Fans were thrilled to see Angelina returning this season as she’s a fan-favourite and hilarious and were even happier to see Morena returning.  The two characters are brilliant together as they have similar personalities and have similar interests. 

Current storyline:
Morena busted Angelina seeling Nyaope and threatened to expose Angelina if she didn’t make him a 50% partner in her business. Morena is a boy with a plan and  he’s money-hungry  just like his step-mother, Angelina

However the two are not good for each other and not good together because they’re both troublemakers and money-hungry! 

Here are some reactions from fans regarding the troublemakers:
“Angelina is selling nyaope…Morena went from being Nyaope addict, to being a dealer.”

“This Morena&Angelina storyline is giving me life.”
 “They both have such strong personalities.”
“Angelina Angelina! You are in for a nasty surprise morena ke step- tsotsi just like you.”
However, not everyone is pleased with the show though as fans are noticing a pattern in the storyline. Fans have also asked about Angelina’s second son with Cobra who has not been mentioned since her return.

“If the #TheRiver1Magic doesn't watch out for this common narrative they have of always spinning good news, they'll lose interest of so many viewers. “
”No one in Refilwe succeeds. Now is Rakgadi, it was just beauty, before that it was Khabzela in his new taxi, etc. “
“It's annoying.”
“Morena winning the competition, Rakgadi finding love le abuti Ntsizwa the list goes on and on. I stopped watching once and I think I am done for good this time, its a total waste of 30 mins.”
“The writers really hate township people because there's really no other explanation.”

The River plays on 1Magic (channel 103) at 8pm, Monday to Friday.
