He urged artists with the ability to share their success with the community to do so, so they could empower young people to take over from them one day.

Presley Chweneyagae Role As Cobra In The River:

The River’s Cobra has proved there’s no such thing as “honour among thieves” after he stole the stolen money to use for his selfish desires.

Viewers of the popular telenovela have been losing their minds watching Cobra, played by Presley Chweneyagae, indulge in luxury living with the money he, Mabutho and Khabzela stole to help their poverty-stricken community.

Never one for charitable deeds in the first place, the selfish Cobra went back to the secret location where they had buried the money they took during a recent bank robbery, with the sole intention of using it to live his best life.

Fans were also angry that even after stealing the money for himself Cobra didn’t help his own family, instead of calling his old friends to chow the money with them.

“So Cobra left the family with no money, no food, no house and in debt to go blow two bar with friends? Thuso will never be successful in life,” one tweep said.

“Cobra is so immature and selfish,” said another.

“Thuso Cobra Mokoena is so selfish. He took the cash that was supposed to help people and is going to eat it with his friends. Sies!” another viewer tweeted.

But this time the actor will call it to quit, Presley said his biggest moment in the movie industry was when he won the award for Outstanding Actor in a leading role for Tsotsi at the Black Movie Awards in Los Angeles, US, in 2006.

He said Tsotsi winning an Oscar that year was a moment he’ll cherish forever.

“My message to young actors is for them to remain strong because they’re in a challenging industry. They must always remain calm, disciplined and focused.

“I’ll quit acting when I turn 40, and I won’t be in involved in the entertainment industry as I’ll focus on a different work and environment.”

He went further to say that he’s been acting for almost 30 years. He’s been an ambassador of the South African Youth Movement for many years and visited various provinces with the organisation during lockdown to distribute food parcels to needy communities.

“Being part of the initiative has been informative about diseases like HIV. I’m teaching others about these diseases. I’ve been reaching out to different areas and it hurts to see people in poverty,” he said.
