Five years after returning to Generations: The Legacy, actor Vusi Kunene is again leaving the popular soapie. Generations spokesperson, Nandipha Pantsi has confirmed that the star is “leaving the show to pursue other ventures”.
Vusi is a firm fan favourite, playing the role of the man everyone loves to hate: Jack Mabaso. Jack will make his final appearance on the show in May. Fans were convinced Vusi was going to leave the show last year when he took a short role on Mzansi Magic’s hit drama series Gomora. Generations rubbished the rumour.
Vusi returned to the show in late 2015 after 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,” Generation’s boss, Mfundi Vundla revealed at the time.
