Despite being caught once by Andile, and Lindiwe's growing suspicion that she no longer loves Lindani, she was even offered a chance to divorce but Tumi just couldn't escape Mabutho's charm and sex appeal. Lindani, who is Mabutho's cousin, has been busy fighting to save his marriage because he believes they still have a fighting chance. Meanwhile, his cousin has been back-stabbing him on numerous occasions because he can't keep his hands off Tumi.

Unfortunately, their steamy affair had to come to an end at some point, they were finally caught slipping and walked into a room full of people. Tumi tried her best to explain what was going on, despite walking out of her bedroom with another man. The shock, however, came when Mabutho demanded to clear the air and set things straight.

Just a few words to his cousin were enough to make things clear and possibly end Tumi and Lindani's marriage, the shock on everyone's face was priceless.
It seems Tweeps don't really blame Tumi for being overpowered by lust, a lot of ladies agreed that they too wouldn't be able to resist the charming "Mabutho". From his cute dimples to his imposing character and authoritative presence, they think he is what a real man should be, something Lindani isn't.
"Hhay Mina I don't blame Tumi shame... I'd do the same thing... Look at Mabutho guys..."


"#TheRiver1Magic  Mabutho is everything that Lindani is not that’s why Tumi is hooked , Lindani o weak even his voice is annoying, kodwa ke Mabutho’s voice has Authority akudlalwa"

"Mabutho is a man yherrrrr no wonder Tumi fell for him, Lindani is the younger version of Lala #TheRiver1Magic"
"#TheRiver1Magic I want to be at the receiving end of whatever Mabutho wants to do to Tumi. I'm just putting it out there"
Clearly Mabutho is a snack and Tweeps are ready and willing to be in Tumi's position, we can't wait to find out what happens on the next episode.
