Moshidi Motshegwa will not be part of The River season 2

Veteran actress Moshidi Motshegwa will not be part of the River season 2.

The 1 Magic telenovela has social media abuzz every night as the storyline keeps its fans on the edge of their seats.

Speaking to Azania Mosaka, Motshegwa says the directors and producers told her at the end of the season that her role has come to an end.

They said they don't have a story for Malefu. It's as simple as that, that is what the producers have said. I am repeating what the producers said.

For me, the most important thing is that I came back, I did the work and I did it at the level I wanted. I have no regrets about the work I have done.

The scene below trended on Twitter for days.

Motshegwa states that it was actually not scripted.

That was a manifesto. In the original scene that was written, Malefu was supposed to get girlish about Walter and I just said hell, no!

A woman who has lived what she had lived would never suddenly just be swooped up because a man says he wants to marry her. I told that to the director and I flipped the script. This was unscripted.

I feel like many women have never been able to say that. We need to say this to men at the startup.

Motshegwa acknowledged the cast she performed with and says her family in the series always had her back.

They are the best cast I have worked with. I am talking about the Lefu family, especially with Presley and Matshepo.

Sometimes there is God, that is what happened to us. God arrived and we were allowed to play with each other.

For one solid year, we had the best time. Two young actors and the kids from the poor side of The River, they brought this powerful energy.
