The controversial Generations actors have revealed that show creator, Mfundi Vundla erroneously raised their salaries when he revealed to the media that they are paid, generally speaking, R55 000 for every month of work they do on the show.
Mandla Gaduka, who plays Choppa on the soapie, said that SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng confirms that Vundla did raise the pay rates. Hlaudi, however couldn't go into too much detail as Vundla is not employed by the national broadcaster.
The Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa assembled a conference in an attempt to mediate the situation and alleviate the growing tension. This attempt was a failure in the end as SABC authorities arrived five hours late and the Generations crew also failed to turn up.
Mthethwa was hoping to give all the stakeholders a platform to talk out their issues, however the no-show from the Generations body did not help the circumstances.
The on-screen characters have said that Vundla has now gone missing and has not rectified the situation or apologized for his announcements.
