Cosatu general-secretary Zwelinzima Vavi tried to intervene in a spat between actors and the founder of soap opera Generations.

“I was fighting for my show and this Vavi comes around and thinks he can f*ck with my show,” the soap’s creator Mfundi Vundla told the the Sunday Times.

“No way that was not going to happen.”

He said Vavi had contacted him via sms and “demanded” to speak to him following the sacking of 16 actors after they went on strike over a wage dispute in August.

Vundla said that along with Vavi, Sports and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula also tried to intervene in the matter.

A relaunch called “Generations – The Legacy” will air on SABC 1 at 8pm tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a case, involving the fired actors, is still before the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration.

Comment from Vavi was not immediately available.
