Mfundi Vundla accused crying crocodile tears who fired Menzi Ngubane from Generations
After the passing of veteran actor Menzi Ngubane, many of his industry peers and admirers poured their souls call at wishing him a peaceful departure. When Mfundi Vundla paid his respects in an interview with an area publication, many accused him of crying hypocrisy. A video has resurfaced where Menzi Ngubane spilled the beans on how Mfundi Vundla mistreated he and a number of other other actors on his hit soapie Generations. If you’ll recall, Mfundi fired the whole cast of the soapie because they demanded higher pay. rather than raising their salaries, he hired a fresh cast and renamed it to Generations: The Legacy. However, it had been Menzi Ngubane who suffered the foremost under his leadership as he was severely sick in some instances but was still required to film various scenes. In the video, Menzi reveals that he had been bedridden for 7 weeks but when he was discharged on a Thursday, he got a turn Friday from Mfundi saying he must return to figure on Monday.
Watching this video saddened me. 💔

Giving him just a weekend’s rest. Obeying his rules, Menzi Ngubane need to work as weak as he was and still gave it his best despite being sick. “As weak as i used to be, 7 weeks within the hospital, I didn’t complain. the sole important thing I had to try to to was attend work and make money for them, which is ok. I awakened thereon Monday to travel and work, as weak as i used to be. Every now then they gave me alittle chair to rest on. I did 6 to 10 scenes each day, as weak as i used to be,” said Menzi during a news conference. Disregarding his treatment towards Menzi and lots of of the actors, Mfundi told TshisaLive that his death was an excellent loss to the local entertainment scene. “It was so sad. I stood there in shock. He was one among SA’s most talented actors and it’s an enormous loss. He had health challenges but always bounced back. i’m devastated. “I will always remember him as an excellent artist. He was very professional and a task model. children wanted to be like him. He stood out. He leaves behind a legacy. Thank goodness there’s a record of his work which will always remain in tribute to him, something which will never been taken, for generations to ascertain and be inspired by,” he told the publication.
