For almost two years now, we have been swept along with Phathu Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon’s perfectly written telenovela (see how the masses concur) and ridden out every wave of emotion of the jaw-dropping second season.
Like the phoenix of mythological times, Lindiwe Dikana (played by Sindi Dlathu) has a knack for rising from the ashes fully reborn, and is a master of manipulation. She has sharp business acumen and knows a con when she sees one (because she’s used the same tricks to get herself this far in life).
She’s a product of her tough environment and makes no excuses for her Machiavellian approach to doing business. She is, after all, the only woman CEO of a mining company and even though life dealt her a bad hand growing up, Lindiwe refuses to apologise for her never-ending ambitious plan. And unlike Caesar, she doesn’t have to worry about being murdered by a close friend. That’s because Lindiwe doesn’t have any, except for her partner in crime and nephew Zolani, who she raised.
