Lindiwe is the daughter of Mlungisi and Zinzile Ngema, and Scelo’s little sister. She is not as academically or athletically gifted as her brother, and it’s because of this that Mlungisi compensates when it comes to her, being more overt in his affections and his approval of her. She thrives on being daddy’s little princess but is distinctly aware that she doesn’t hold the same importance as her brother, and this feeds her jealousy towards him. She has a decent relationship with her mother and is aware of her mother’s protectiveness of Scelo. Past the jealousy she does love her brother and in times of difficulty will always have his back, but is also likely to hold it against him after the fact.
