Generations: New Season 8 mystery revealed!

It's almost time for Season 8 of Generations: The Legacy and TVSA has you covered with the inside scoop on who's new and what's up with that mystery guy.

The season premieres on Monday 22 November and three days later we meet him in a hospital bed, under the watchful eye of Sphe's (Pearl Monama) stethoscope. 

This from the November teasers

What is the deal with the mystery patient?

Today we can reveal his name: Lelethu, played by Class Act alumnus Yonda Thomas, whose repertoire includes roles on Isibaya, Saint & Sinners and Doubt, where he starred as a man accused of murder at his bachelor party. 

His role as Lelethu is also a starring role so he'll be in the thick of the new season. 

Lelethu's a reporter by profession, but this is only to pay the bills because he desperately wants to be a writer of grand and influential works.

According to his official biography:

He wrote a seminal work on gangsterism in his youth: he befriended the gangsters, and he wrote about it.

The gangsters felt betrayed - he spilt their secrets. But he got the story and the accolades so it was all worth it!

He won multiple, premier, non-fiction awards both locally and abroad. But that was years ago. And he’s been trying to recapture that lightening ever since.

How does Sphe feel about him? A clue: he's charming and witty and moves from woman to woman  - openly and honestly without hiding his antics.

Pele's (Andile Nebulane) going to have a problem with this apparently, because he doesn't understand why women like him so much when it's clear he's such a Casanova. 

He's also described as unselfconsciously sexy, well behaved and someone who treats women well, so this must be what knocks their socks off.

As Yonda steps into this new lead role, he's joined by Zola Nombona who's been promoted to starring cast as investigative journalist Pamela Khoza.

Word from Gen publicist Nandipha Pantsi is that we'll be seeing a lot more of her in the season. 

This is Zola's tenth starring role in her ever expanding list of credits which includes Z'bondiwe, iNumber Number, Lockdown, Forced Love, Single Guyz and Galz, Mzansi Love and iThuba Lokugcina.

But wait... there's more: Ayanda's father Mandla Majola arrives shortly before Christmas and looks set to be much more of a problem than a present. 

He's played by Momelezi Ntshiba, who's appeared in numerous TV shows including Z'bondiwe, Rhythm City and Saints & Sinners, where he starred as Silas in Season 3.

And he's been in Gen before, in the guest role of Mr Khawula, back in 2014 before it was The Legacy.

He makes his first appearance as Mr Majola on 8 December.

For me GTL,DiepCity,TheEstate,TheRiver have better talent at the moment when it come to performance

the sexy Yonda....Loved him as Majola on Isidingo.  Was missing his face on TV. From what I see he is a complete replica of Siyanda Khoza (KAY SIBIYA]. I totally feel that if Kay had stayed on GTL, his career was going to move from strength to strength. But hey, Hlomu dad to happen so we wish him all the best. Let's hope Lelethu falls in love with Pam before he does with Sphe.

@ #1999 Kay is on Hlomu for all of 6 episodes since the storyline booted him out on episode 6. I could be wrong though as I have not read the books.
