Generations Fans Want Mawande to Stay

By Staff Writer    19-Jun-2013 15:13 UTC+02:00 74

mawande-300x265In April this year it was reported that Mawande (Nambitha Mpumlwana) would be leaving Generations after her contract was not renewed. Millions of Generations viewers are not happy about this. Some of them sound really angry. If Generations executive producer Mfundi Vundla could read all their comments, perhaps he would consider bringing her back.

There are viewers who have threatened to stop watching Generations if Mfundi doesn’t bring Nambitha back. Below are a some of the comments from our readers (unedited):

Jump Case: Mxm- No ways we’re watching Generations again! Watch yourselves lose viewers.

Debra mabuza: Plz Mr Vundla let Mawande stay we love her she is the best thing we ever had,we love u Wandy plz dnt go mommy.

Chriselda Mphelo: SABC, you ought to think again about letting Mawande go. Generations is boring as it is, with her gone it will be worse.

Lister: U Mfundi u have done a mistake u will regret in this soap.

Nqobile Mzola: I wl mic u Wandi u de best thing in Generation i dnt lyk dis Mfundi Vundla anymore nw u cn go 2hell i wl never watch generations.

Anonymous: Mawande is the leading role in Generations alongside Sbusiso and I think that they are making a big mistake by letting her go no one is gonna watch that show anymore. Mawande is definitely the anchor of that show with her gone wats the use of that show. Mfundi think about wat you have done mxm.

Although the majority of viewers want Mawande to stay, I found one reader (Lunga) who thinks her departure won’t make a difference, life will go on:

Lunga: Generations won’t be boring just because Mawande is leaving, not that she was not a good actor, but then what she did was wrong by appearing late at work and all those stuffs. Nd besides even 2 Karabo ppl said Generations will be boring once she left bt then many of those are still watching Gen though. Ppl are so confusing yazi.

Nambitha will appear for the last time on the soapie in August since Generations episodes are recorded three months ahead of their airing. It was reported that the reason her contract was not renewed is that she was unprofessional and too hard to handle. She reportedly had a habit of arriving late and unprepared at work. Her fellow actor told the Sunday Sun that sometimes she never pitched at work, which would mess up the recording schedule and inconvenience everyone else.

However, Generations’ Executive Producer Mfundi Vundla said, “Mawande’s story has run its course. Nambitha was cast as Mawande due to her capabilities as an actress. Writing out the character has nothing to do with her talent.”


  1. Londy says:

    I’m one of those who will stop watching Generubish.

  2. Olwethu says:

    Its unfair that the mighty mawande is leaving mxm generations will be boring without you wandi

  3. Lungi says:

    I really think generations will still be good with her gone if she was being so hard to work with talent or no talent she should respect her craft

  4. Mollie says:

    May b they should let her go. If they bring her back because of viewers’ comments she might feel indispensable and become even harder to handle.

  5. keke polina says:

    Mfudi u make a mastake leave mawade netsoo we love generation bcause of her mxm

  6. pumlisa says:

    I’m gonna miss her 🙁

  7. Bridget bongiwe (14 years) says:

    Dear producers and creators of Generations. please dont let Generations be MBHEDORATION, you guys have to renew NAMBITHAs contract she is one of the best you have ever had. PLZ do us all a favour and renew that contract.

  8. Bikoism says:

    The truth you do not know black people is that Vundla is no longer an entity @ Genarations. When he started Generations in the early 90s, the story line was based in the township (set in Protea) with the Moroka family showing black people how to change their fortunes around. Then the private sector; threatened by a story line that showed blacks in a progressive manner got offended and withdrew adverts, forcing Vundla to surrender the story line and production direction to one of the Jesus killer Jew racists that control the SABC with advertising revenue from the private sector to keep the show alive. The private sector wanted a story line that show blacks planning to bring down each other, as it is happening right now as you also witness black actresses wearing weaves to insult African beauty and promote European standards. Check the credits, Mfundi is only mentioned as a creator and the current producer calling all the shots is Frederick Stark. Get the picture? And because you’re like Daily Sin readers who keep that racist tabloid insulting black people’s image alive, you keep on watching this nonsense in numbers. Look at Isindingo and 7 de laan and see white consciousness at work. No white drunken mothers behaving as reckless as Khethiwe. It’s a nice set up with actors portraying responsible parenting and ethical business etiquette because your enemies are telling your own stories through corporate blackmail. Stop financing your own destruction black people. They created AIDS and forced your government to finance drugs meant to expedite your destruction. Where is your mind?

    Mxm mxm mxm u guy r selfish shm

  10. Magu says:

    I hate gnratn by now,wat really go on,lyk sbusiso z going 2 be out or wat?i’m stl countng on him.

  11. bokang says:

    Please whatever you do keep sibusiso he makes it interesting

  12. Minenhle Mkhize says:

    We all know now Mawande was bringing you’ll guys trouble or give u Mfundi Vundla a headache. But please try bringing her back to Gen. You may tried talking to her about her behavior towards her work or done something in some way trying to help her. Look, this actress is very very talented and brings Gen. to another higher level. Just bring her back and sign her a contract of 2years at least. If I were u. I wouldn’t renew her contract of what she has put me and the team through. But she is something special on Gen. Mr Vundla your viewers are so disappointed on u, dumping such a well known talented actress. Although u don’t wanna bring her back in Gen. Think of Gen’s. future. I really like the way Mawande acts as a Gen. viewer. So as other Gen. viewers. Although Gen.’s director played Mawande and Noluntu the same thing over and over again. Thinking his dead brother is alive. Noluntu playing tricks on her with the phone calls. Please bring back Mawande Mamela on your screen.Thank You/Ngiyabonga

  27. Lhee says:

    Let her go. Generations wil stil b better without her. She’s a gud actress bt if she’s hard to handle n cnt work well with others she MUST go. Generations is abt team work. ppl stop saying u r NOT gna watch GEN u will. Goodbye Nambitha ndikunqwenelela okuhle cc ingath ulibele ba this is SA nt Hwood

  28. nikkie says:

  29. Anonymous says:

    I so love that lady and when she was away i hardly watched Generations, please Mr Vundla every person deserves a second chance, she draws more views to watch the sopie, let her see how she is ruining her reputation by coming late to work, let her see how we love her and maybe she will be more serious about her work, please renew her contract i so love the super strong woman Mawande the CEO of YonaYethu.

  30. Anaye Tom says:

    You can’t do this to Mawande,she deserves more.I just love that women she inspires me with everything.She’s a very Good actress so Plz Mr Mvundla with all your respect let Mawande stay or Generations will lose viewers.I love you Nambitha(Mawande)Keep up the Good work.

  48. Aro says:

    Thats why s.a’s soapies will never be like american soapies,in america they know when someone is best for business,s.a producers dont care whether we want her to stay or not,to them its just a soapie,they dont care who watch it,why we watch it,because of whom we watch it,they have no skill and knowledge about television.if u dont care what the fans say,then dont expect ur soapie to win awards.
