SABC 1’s flagship soapie Generations: The Legacy is believed to be seeking ratings as e.TV soapies like Scandal are hot on their heels to overtake it and become the second most-watched soapie in the country. As such, it is believed that creator Mfundi Vundla is scrabbling to make sure this does not happen.
The first part of the plan was getting rid of one of its original cast mates Musa Ngema who played the character of Mazwi Moroka. As reported:
In March 2023, it was already speculated that Musa Ngema was set to bid farewell to his beloved character Mazwi Moroka. As reported:
Scores of viewers and tweeps at large feel as though Vundla is desperate for ratings and very much sleeping on Mzansi’s new and fresh talent. Social media have been abuzz since yesterday and evidently, not everyone is jumping for joy for the return of Karabo Mokora and Tau Mogale.
However, the return of the pair will definitely shake things up and also see some actor (s) exiting the show. Reportedly, Mazwi Moroka who is portrayed by Musa Ngema will be leaving the show at the return of Karabo Moroka and Tau Mogale.
What a journey.
I am grateful for all the memories created and shared with the cast, crew, and, importantly, the viewers over the last few years.#GenerationsTheLegacy pic.twitter.com/SQZ6a0C8gO

As such, on Friday, 21 April 2023, Mazwi finally met his end in the world of the story as he was killed when he saved his cousin Paul from his kidnapping.
In light of the funeral arrangements, the cast of the show is set to have a shakeup as it will mark the return of one of the soapie’s most beloved couples, Karabo and Tau, played by Connie Ferguson and Rapulana Seiphemo. As such, the soap has teased the first look at the return of the first half of the beloved couple.
First, look at Connie Ferguson’s return to Generations
Currently, Generations: The Legacy is facing the battle on which grounds will Mazwi be buried. As such, his body is set to arrive at the Moroka mansion in the upcoming episode. However, this is not the highlight of the episode by any means.
This is as the soapie recently took to Twitter to share that the highlight will mark the return of Connie Ferguson as Karabo Moroka.

Seeing as she might be returning alone in this episode. It is unclear when Rapulana will make his own return. However, what is known for sure is that the actor will be there for the funeral. This is as images have already been leaked of his return.
Recently, a social media user took to Twitter and shared the first images of Connie and Rapulana reprising their beloved roles as Karabo and Tau. The images confirmed that the two would make their return during an upcoming Moroka funeral taking place.
