It's been a whole two days since the number one trending topics on Twitter have been widely debated - #TheFergusons #IStandWithVatiswa.

Award-winning actress, Vatiswa Ndara opened a can of worms on Monday after posting an open letter to the minister of Arts and culture, Nathi Mthethwa.

In the letter, Vati (as she is affectionately known) didn't only take a swipe at Connie and Shona Ferguson but also went on to highlight the general state of the Arts in South Africa.

This empowering and bold move by Vatiswa inspired other creatives to come forward and share their horrifying experiences with #TheFergusons and in the entertainment industry in general.

Now, in a new twist of events, The Fergusons are considering taking legal action towards the latest allegations that have been levelled against them by Vatiswa Ndara. Some of the allegations include exploitation and the inhumane manner in which actors are allegedly treated by Ferguson Films.

In an interview with leading news channel, eNCA, Vatiswa stated that if legal action is taken against her, then she will deal with it as no one has been in touch with her.

Entertainment commentator, Phil Mphela confidently shared on his Twitter timeline about the legal action that the Fergusons are undertaking towards Vatiswa.


According to a letter sent to independent Media by the Ferguson's lawyer, Brendon de Kooker, it reads:

"The allegations made in the letter regarding our clients are wrongful and published with the intention of causing our client harm. The allegations made in the letter regarding our client are wrongful and published with the intention of causing our client harm.''

Ferguson Films has since issued out a statement regarding the whole saga.

Some of the points made in the statement, include the legal steps that they are considering taking, regarding the claims made by, The Throne actress, Keke Mphuthi. The actress revealed that she almost lost her baby as a result of the stress that she endured at the hands of the Fergusons.


By the look of things, this drama is far from over.

The saga continues...
