Top SABC soapie Generations: The Legacy has been banned by our Zimbabwean neighbours after numerous attacks on Zimbabwe culture and beliefs.

An official statement released by a Zimbabwe official stated, ‘It is with great regret that we announce an immediate ban on the South African soapie, Generations :The Legacy on our screens. This decision was taken after a series of bad publicity by our Southern neighbour who have gone out of their way to depict Zimbabwe in a bad way’.

The press release said before adding, ‘At first they showed a character called Cosmo having his girlfriend stuck in Zimbabwe for drugs. We let is slide. They however thought our silence meant we are docile.

They took it a notch up and now portraying Zimbabwe at the capital nation of witchcraft and black magic after the whole mamlambo the snake ordeal’.

The ban will see the 8 o’clock slot being replaced by a new series yet to be confirmed.

The press release further insinuated that there is a chance the whole SABC bouquet will be banned off Zimbabwean airwaves if the ‘attack’ continues.

Recent episodes have seen soapie favorite Gaddafi and his wife Tshidi acquiring a snake from a sangoma who has his ‘master’ in Zimbabwe.

Efforts to get comment from SABC did not yield fruits.
