Don Mlangeni-Nawa, the actor known for playing the role of Zebedee Matabane in the SABC3 daily drama Isidingo attended a formal disciplinary hearing yesterday. The hearing comes as a result of the actor's disregard for conduct codes and lack of discipline while contracted to the daily drama produced by Endemol.
Mlangeni-Nawa’s lack of discipline and general disrespect for the show, the company, its many great actors and the SABC, saw Endemol take action (both verbally and in writing) against the actor after his repeated transgressions on and off set. “This disciplinary hearing is unfortunate, but necessary,” Sivan Pillay, Endemol’s Managing Director says.
Since it first aired on SABC 3 back in July of 1998, Isidingo has grown in popularity and with it so has the cast. “It is important to note that mutual respect, by and for the entire cast and crew of the show, is something we take very seriously,” Pillay asserts. “No one actor or crew member is bigger, or has the right to compromise any part of what makes Isidingo the great show it is today”.
