The end has arrived as The River's Tumi is leaving the soapie. Fans have been scrutinizing and criticizing the actress's acting saying it is very dismal.

Larona Moagi played the emotionless Tumi Mokoena on the 1Magic telenovela and was often compared to the greats such as Dimpho, Zolani and actresses, Sindi Dlathu and Motshidi Motshegwa who have been praised for their exceptional acting.

Even her own on-screen mother was not feeling her. Motshidi Motshegwa got released from the show because the two didn’t get along. These are the words that got her fired:

''It was very difficult to work with Larona. We can't cast people from Instagram, give them a huge role and not give them support. 

I even said at the meeting with our producers that Larona is struggling because she is not an actress and has been given a huge role to play. This is a craft. It is a skill."

Motshidi probably has a smirk on her face as the rumours of Larona's exit are rife, this after entertainment commentator, Phil Mphela tweeted a cryptic tweet a few days ago which read:

“TV: The River ends Season 3 with a shocker. Only 5 episodes left, then the popular telenovela wraps its 3rd season. One major character is leaving the show. No word if it’s a permanent or temporary exit. Who do you think it is? Keep watching #TheRiver1Magic.”
