There’s never a dull moment in soapie land. Besides the Senzo- Noluntu-Jason love triangle now

brewing in Generations, there’s another one on the cards on the same show. The resulting orgy of backstabbing has tempers flaring.

Apart from being romantically linked to Xolani, Mam’ Ruby has also been emotionally supportive of Khethiwe in the past. What’s more, the issue isn’t just about a woman dating a man almost half her age, but also the fact that he grew up with Mam’ Ruby’s daughter, Dineo.

We catch up with the three actors at the Generations headquarters. Siyabonga is loud and lively and, as a natural comedian, immediately breaks into a succession of jokes.
