The unprecedented has happened! Today, 18 August 2014 saw at least 16 Generations actors being fired. This after the actors refused to report for work and continued with their strike for better wages and royalty fees.

In a joint statement between the Generations production company, MMSV and the SABC, the two parties noted that:

“MMSV Productions, following consultation with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), have today terminated the contracts of the striking actors on the SABC1 soap drama, Generations. The termination follows calls by both parties for the actors to return for recordings, following the start of their illegal strike.

The SABC and MMSV Productions would like to assure the public that measures have been put in place to ensure the future of Generations.

All future plans will be communicated by the SABC in due course.”

The following are the names of the actors that have been fired.

  1. Generations will never be the same again, but I dont think this will last. They wii soon be reinstated, contract be reviewed. Yes, Mfundi Vundla and production company in collaboration with the SABC must revisit their propagated decision.

    1. I think dismissal is not a good way of responding to requests.I hope that this will reconsidered because I am certain that Generation owners the undescribable loss that will cause the to chase the actors in singles,begging for peace.

    2. I, as many others, am begging for the restoration of the actor because dismissal is never a remedy.For-sure the Generation viewership will dicline.

  2. I dnt thnk this is good ideas.something good to the actors has to be done or else the soapie will be lost.

  3. You guys have made enough, by the look of things. How possibly would such actors be fired? They pretty much make up the whole soapie and firing them will never guarantie what the soapie has meant to many people. I don’t mean to measure your judgement, but this time you have lost the plot. I can confidently say, many if not all of these actors will be re-instated.

  4. This is not the solution because these actors are THE GENERATiONS, so them being fired means the end of the Soapie. The whole action taken by SABC is ridiculous these people deserve better wages for their talent

  5. I dnt thnk its a gud idea wthout those actors/actresses theres no Generations

  6. such actors deserve better wage,entertainment isn’t with the SABC ,it’s with them,..to perform/act isn’t something from heaven,..Generation won’t last without them…

  7. With those actors fired I don’t think we still have generation let’s be realistic on this one.

  8. generation will never be there same they must bring them back

  9. Without those actors,there is no generation so i won’t be wasting my precious time to watch the new generation

  10. the media must think twice before taking any decition

  11. GENERATIONS won’t be the same anymore all the main actors are gone now you might aswell close the whole soapie I’m very dissapointed

  12. very very stupid decision…

  13. This Mfundi Vundla seems To Be arrogant. The bulk of actors he’s fired are the spine of This soapie. Some poeple need To Be taught a lesson, perhaps the harsh way so as To humble them

  14. I must say,you took a huge step by firing teh actors. So what’s going to happen now? What should we expect as the audience?

  15. no no no no…..the actors being fired are actually the pillars of Generations…and with inflation rising so high, they should get an increase…unless Mfundi is ready to close down the soapie…mxm

  16. vundla must reinstated them he is wrong without listen to them they cant strike without anything

  17. we all know that no one will watch generations if those guys are fired .jus being honest .

  18. Generation keep our lifes flow nd teach us hw 2 have a better life nd all thnx generation team keep it up guys we appreciate it
