Mfundi Vundla Dismissive and Flippant about Everything on RGB

Mfundi Vundla was dismissive and flippant about everything relating to the August 18, 2014 dismissal of 16 actors on Generations while speaking to Phat Joe on the Real Goboza episode which aired on SABC 1 at 19:30 on Saturday night of July 04, 2015.

Mfundi + VundlaUndoubtedly SABC 1’s The Real Goboza is no Special Assignment or 3rd Degree, however, it is also no Late Night News with Loyiso Gola.

Mfundi Vundla provided no real insight into the events of August 18, 2014 when 16 actors were dismissed from Generations including Menzi Ngubane, Nambitha Mpumlwana, Patric Shai and Seputla Sebogodi among others.

The closest thing to explaining himself or the situation surrounding the dismissal of those actors was that they were ill-advised, these are not the exact words used by Mfundi Vundla in that interview with Phat Joe but near accurate paraphrasing.

He went on to mention the feats he has achieved as a producer further saying that the industry has treated him fairly in terms of his financial well being, however, he added that he could be richer – this directly answering a question asked by Phat Joe.

Mfundi Vundla did not only unapologetically dismiss the issue of dismissed actors he also somewhat denounced or expressed his unhappiness with Zwelinzima Vavi’s involvement in the issue.

He told Phat Joe that after firing 16 actors from his show, Generations, he decided to take a holiday to Michigan or Northern Michigan in the United States of America (USA).

Upon landing in Chicago (presumably in the State of Illinois) in the USA he received a text message (SMS) from Zwelinzima Vavi “demanding” a meeting and he told him to get lost.

Mfundi Vundla went on to tell Phat Joe that he [Mfundi Vundla] wasn’t always a television producer; he was an activist who went to Fort Hare University with Steve Biko.

One thing Mfundi Vundla made crystal clear in the now infamous interview on The Real Goboza is that there was no going back between himself and the 16 actors he fired – even using the word “caput” to describe the relations between the two parties.
