The SABC has been canning international and local shows for the past five years now. They started with international soap operas such as; Days of our Lives and The Bold and Beautiful, then moved locally to SABC 3’s Isidingo_The need which was struggling with viewership for years. Their reasoning for canning shows is usually based on the viewership of the shows. 

Muvhango Cancelled Due To Poor Ratings?

The show was a hit in the 90s when it’s still had The River’s creator; Phathu Makwarela as its head writer but went downhill when he left. It has apparently become one of those boring shows for some people, but others still enjoy it. Should the rumours be true, it will leave most people jobless and stranded just like Isidingo_ The Need

They are rumors that says Muvhango will be replaced by The queen one of the most viewed shows on mzansi magic.
