Frankly Speaking, Nothing and no one is above scrutiny
  Kenneth Mashaba leaving Generations

Seputla Sebogodi (Kenneth Mashaba) is set to leave local soapie Generations and will last be seen on screen at the end of August 2011. This comes after Connie Ferguson who played Karabo Moroka for just a little over 16 years, left the show last year, followed by Siya Twala who left the show just recently.

Seputla
Goodbye Kenneth

Seputla played the caharacter of villainous Kenneth with distinction and viewers could be forgiven for thiking Seputla is just like Kenneth. After all, it isn't everyday that you have such a great actor who puts so much effort into making a character believable without making it look like it takes an effort to do so.

Seputla first appeared in Generations in 2005 alongside Katlego Danke who played his trophy Dineo. Dineo has since gone to prove her mettle in the boardroom and ditched her trophy wife titled, leaving Kenneth devastated. Kenneth told Drum magazine back in 2005 that he practically begged to play the role. "I begged the producers to write me in and I had a number of ideas about how the character should be," he told Drum magazine.

Makisto's sources say Seputla has lost some weight. Another source states that they overheard him making jokes with another local soapie about wanting to join their cast. 

Tonight reports that it is Seputla's decision to leave the soapie. “I’m going to do some industrial theatre and road shows. I am also doing the Grahamstown National Arts Festival. Right now I just want to take a break from TV. Sometimes you need to sit on the backseat and watch others in the driver’s seat," Seputla told the Tonight.

In stage play

Tonight continues to report that, [Generations] head writer Chris Blomkamp enlightens on their plans for Dineo. “By the time Paul and Kenneth have left Dineo’s life for good, Dineo will realise she is a Mashaba by name only. Kenneth and Paul’s departure will cause Dineo to stop and take stock of her life. On a journey of self-discovery, she returns to the past for answers and, the more she digs, the more she realises she may have opened a can of worms.” 

Seputla Sebogodi
Seputla also has a career in the gospel music industry though Makisto isn't sure about his musical abilities

On how Kenneth will be written out of the top soapie (The show has over 4 million daily viewers), Chris told the Tonight, “Kenneth is such a well-loved character, it would be ‘suicide’ to get rid of him. So no coffins or shootings. The opportunity will always exist for him to return. What we can say is that Kenneth may finally get what’s long been coming to him.” Read the story on Tonight here.

Seputla first became a much-loved actor in the early '90s in the local Pedi drama Bophelo Ke Semphekgo playing the role of womanising Nkwesheng. The show was so popular such that a well known musician back in the day wrote a song about Nkusheng and it became a hit a tarvens and shebeens.

Pictures through the lens of various sites on the net. Makisto sends out his love to all web content managers for programming the pictures in such a way that I can copy them.

Oh wow!
 Shame, i hope he's not sick. Eish m sure Dineo will found out they were related somehow with Kenneth or Paul. I think they brothers and sister from different mothers.

Eish who is going to be a devil now on Gen if he goes? Nc nc nc!

they must get faces people love and miss. but not just any. they must get the best actors..... I agree

They must steal a lot of characters from intersexions, coz all of those are known brilliant actors and actresses. M talking about........ everyone who was casted there, they are just the brilliant actors la eMzansi and that is what made intersexions so enjoyable, not just the story line!!!!!! 

unless they are planning to turn Queen into a superbitch!

i personally think Generation breaks most actors and actress careers. what happened to all the good actors we had in Generations

as for Seputla - i guess the role gets boring at times

i am not judging Mzansi actors and actresses but its about tym the old faces step aside and let the new energetic youngs ones out there do their thing like i have been watching drama's like Intersexion, I like George,Ntombi,Kabelo and His wife and ,Lindi those ppl got what it takes to get someone glued on the tv set ppl like Akuye that friday series that involve two lesbians those ppl got me hoocked the entire cast therefore if Mzansi soapies intend not to loose it taste and viewers they must spice it up a bit if we r complaining as TV licence payers and viewers our needs must be fullfilled we have no tym for toyi toyi hahahahahahah (((hides)))

Sad loss. Seputla wasn't a phenomenal actor but he was much better than the riff-raff Generations seems to be hiring lately (ajax's nurse, those annoying kids, the stiff lawyers, annoying doctors, the lame office staff, choppa etc...). I doubt that the production team watches the show anymore or else they'd see that its getting whack by the episode. I hope they replace Seputla with a strong actor. Contrary to industry belief Generations doesn't need a familiar face to keep their ratings up. Their time slot is convenient. They have no competition - yet. I'm against bringing in familiar faces because most of them suck. Find some fresh TALENTED blood for goodness' sake. They'll be famous within a month on tv anyways. Not former presenters, beauty queens and kwaito singers. The following need to go: 1.) ALL their lazy directors who never do location shoots. Their static direction makes the poor actors look uncomfortable. 2.) The casting director who cant spot real talent. 3.) The continuity team that's unaware that Dineo's hairstyle changed 3 times on one episode last week 4.) The writing team with their predictable storylines. 5.) Mfundi needs to step down and hire an EP who still has passion for tv. His died when Sello Maake, Pamela Nomvete, Vinoliah Mashego left the show. Generations was hot back then. Oh and Queen needs to go. Shame the writers dont know what to do with her anymore. She now spends the whole episode visiting Siqalo Court residents.

Its quiet nice to read about all of your comments. however its disappointing to read about all of you exchanging words.Everyone has a right to comment as they wish bt If we focused more on comments relating to the soapie I think it would be more fun and exciting. i know i am stepping on toes and someone might tell me where to get off, but think of this; someone out there is reading about your comment hoping to get an inside of what the viewers are expecting and would want to watch and they are willing to make changes or use your ideas. Thats what this site is all about, I think! Good friday people.....
