What can ‘Generations’ do to cover its holes?

2014-08-20 00:00

GENERATIONS executive producer Mfundi Vundla says the show will go on … even without the big stars.

“We have a number of plans in place. Generations is not going to die because of this, the show will go on,” he said after 16 cast members were fired on Monday.

Cast members were given an ultimatum to show up for work on Monday or be fired. They were objecting to what they term “unfair working conditions”.

With Vundla claiming to have exit strategies in place for the stars, sister newspaper Daily Sun asked its readers to come up with suggestions to write the cast members out of the soapie, arguably the most popular in Africa.

And the fans were quite frank:

• Ron Colonel: Dlomo family (including Noluntu) died on the plane crash on their trip visiting Mawande in Cape Town. Ruby, Patrick and Dineo have moved to Thohoyandou with their shebeen. And the rest have been attacked by Ebola.

• Jacyjay’s Letsoalo: Don’t be surprised if there’s an earthquake and the only survivors are the supporting actors.

• Neo M Lehola Ramotsehoa: Noluntu has a tea party, invites everyone and poisons the tea. And they all die!

• Kelloggs K Ngobeni: I would end it with them disappearing like the Malaysian plane.

• Binkie Matlanado: Turn it all into a zombie horror movie for a night.

• Thintho Tido Master: Bomb them while they’re at Sbu’s wedding. The End.

• Vusumuzi Memela: Make them go on a cruise and let the ship sink.

• Boswell Maloka: They all die during an earthquake.

The ANC Youth League said it plans to meet with the cast, who they said should not back down.

Representative of the striking cast members, Bulelani Mzamo, said the actors are reviewing their legal options.

The cast members who were dismissed are: Anga Makubalo, Atandwa Kani, Katlego Danke, Mandla Gaduka, Menzi Ngubane, Nambitha Mpumlwana, Patrick Shai, Slindile Nodangala, Sophie Ndaba, Seputla Sebogodi, Thami Mngqolo, Thato Molamu, Winnie Ntshaba, Zenande Mfenyana, Zikhona Sodlaka and Zolisa Xaluva.
