The sixteen fired ‘Generations’ actors have not abandoned their bid to get the new version of the soapie off the air – this time the actors have sought an urgent court interdict set for Tuesday.
Represented by lawyer, Bulelani Mzamo, the axed sixteen have set a deadline that if Generations: The Legacy airs tonight, they will take their legal battle to the South Gauteng High Court to have the drama removed from SABC 1’s daily schedule.
According to City Press, the sixteen are peeved that Generations executive producer Mfundi Vundla has not paid any heed to their legal letters. In the latest correspondence, the actors called for the soapie to be taken off air this year.
“I am aware of the planned legal action, but the show will go on because we have a contract with the SABC, not the actors,” Vundla said.
Kaizer Kganyago, SABC spokesperson told City Press that the show would go on, legal saga or not.
“If the SABC chooses to ignore this deadline and air the ‘new’ Generations, we will be left with no choice but to launch an urgent application with the high court for the removal of the soapie with immediate effect,”said Mzmo.
