‘Muvhango’ comes to an end after 27 years


SABC2 soapie Muvhango comes to an end after 27 years.

The TV show portrayed life in Venda rural Thohoyandou mixing with modern life of people from the tribe living in the city.

On Tuesday Muvhango announced the end of the soapie on social media.

“End of the road for Muvhango, thank you for watching all these years.”

“SABC2 will take Muvhango viewers down memory lane with the broadcast of the retro episodes of this iconic soapie. Muvhango debuted in 1997, broadcasting once a week and grew to become a daily soapie. As part of celebrating 30 years of democracy, SABC2 will broadcast Muvhango starting from season 1 and provide an opportunity to showcase the historical moments of this iconic production to audiences who may not have seen the show from the beginning,” SABC publicist Caroline Phalakatshela said.

Muvhango is the first Tshivenda TV drama and has presented South African citizens who have not travelled to Venda with an opportunity to have a closer look at one of the most beautiful places in the country.

“The episodes aim to celebrate the success Muvhango has been to the SABC and South Africans. Having been on air for 27 years is a huge milestone and reflects the remarkable talent of the cast and crew and its management team,” Phalakatshela said.
