According to Drum Magazine, Thwala’s character Bangizwe Zwane is a street-smart alpha male who runs a successful scrapyard which is a front for his illegal businesses.

‘THE RIVER’: IS BANGIZWE REPLACING ZWELI DIKANA?
It appears Thwala will be replacing actor Hlomla Dandala who exited the telenovela as Lindiwe Dikana’s husband Zweli Dikana in The River.
This is after entertainment commentator Phil Mphela announced that the fan-favourite actor Hlomla Dandala has exited the telenovela after five seasons.
1Magic shared a flashforward of his character ‘getting killed’ by his son-in-law Mabutho at Nomonde’s wedding in February though neither Mphela, the channel, production, or actor has revealed how Zweli will bid farewell to the telenovela.
The River season 5 flashforward indicates Mabutho will ‘accidentally kill’ him in the bathroom after he confronts him at his and Nomonde’s wedding.
