Johannesburg – Five years after returning to Generations: The Legacy, actor Vusi Kunene is again leaving the popular soapie.
Generations: The Legacy spokesperson Nandipha Pantsi confirmed the news, saying the star is “leaving the show to pursue other ventures”.
Vusi is a firm favourite, playing the role of the man everyone loves to hate, Jack Mabaso.
Kunene will make his final appearance on the show in May.
Fans were convinced that Kunene was going to leave the show last year when he took a short role on Mzansi Magic’s hit drama series Gomora. At the time, Generations rubbished the rumour.
Vusi returned to the show in late 2015 following a stint on Isibaya and Isidingo.
“We are bringing in interesting characters, big characters. We’ll bring back people like Jack Mabaso because we are in a life or death struggle with our competitors. We got ourselves a striker. That will mean we’ll score more goals,” said Generations boss Mfundi Vundla.
