The SABC has been cancelling international and local shows for the past five years. They started with international soapie operas such as Days of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful.
They moved locally to SABC 3’s Isidingo: The Need which was struggling to attract viewers for years. The cancellation of local shows is usually based on the viewership of each show.
The cancellation of international shows was a way by SABC to promote more local shows, supported by South Africans.
According to reports by the Sunday World, Muvhango is rumoured to be getting dumped by the SABC. The show has been playing for more than 20 years on SABC 2.
The soapie has been struggling with viewership for the past five years. It is sad news to the show’s crew members and the actors as they are going to lose jobs.
