An update on Ga Re Dumele... if you tuned in on Sunday you'll have seen that the new season didn't start - it was a repeat of Season 5 instead. 

SABC2 confirmed to us that the new season was starting but it didn't. Now they say it's only going to start in April so we'll see.

They've given no reason for it not starting but we suspect it has something to do with the SABC's financial meltdown - could be they didn't pay the production company for the show so the producers didn't deliver the new season.
