Vundla spoke to 702’s Xolani Gwala after MMSV Productions released a statement to say that the contracts of the actors taking place in the latest strike had been terminated.

According to a statement released collectively by the actors last week, the group went on strike after their demands for longer contracts (among others) had not been met. Last year, the cast seemed to have reached an agreement with the SABC and the show’s producers, but the actors claimed they were threatened with dismissal and ordered to go back to work.
