Vuyo Biyela as Mlilo on the River
Speaking about his character, Vuyo said: “Mlilo is a broken man. He didn’t grow up with his father because he was at war. He had to drop out of school to help his mum because they had very little. Another thing that breaks him is that when his father finally comes home, he starts a relationship with another woman and leaves his mum.”
