The Muvhango actor revealed that he has been at home unpaid for three months and is still waiting to see if he has a job.
Service Provider SABC (South African Broadcasting Corporation) has not yet renewed its soap contract.
Daily Sun reported that WordofMouth sent a letter to the actor telling them to contact them once the contract between Soap and SABC was signed. According to sources in the publication, the letter was sent without contact two months later, and the cast was very angry that it wasn't returned to the next season.
"You are now sitting at home without knowing your destiny and you don't know if you should look for another job."
Cast and crew admit that this is not the first time SABC has postponed a contract. But it didn't take long. "We fumble in the dark and don't know if we'll be called back."
"We take a break every August and September, but usually the new season starts in October. This year Hasn't returned to work yet, "Duma Ker Ndlov, creator of the show, told People's Paper that he is still waiting for SABC to confirm the renewal of the new contract.
"We are waiting for SABC to issue a contract to us. They are busy working on the contract and do not know the complexity."
SABC General Affairs and Marketing Group Leader Gugu Ntuli said due to Muvhango's lifespan. He said the cumulative value of production has increased.
