A cast member claimed the actors have been on strike for the past three months.

“They haven’t been shooting. At first, we thought it was normal procedure where some get time off and others shoot.

“They’ve been off for a long time now. We do take time off, but normally it’s weeks – not months,” the cast member said.

Dingaan said he is unaware of a strike: “As far as I know, I’m still part of Muvango. I’m happy. I’m not shooting because I’m on leave.”

But another cast member confirmed they’ve been off for three months.
