- Local author, Zakes Mda, has shared that he won't be watching the popular SA soapie Isidingo for a while
- This will be the first time since 1998 that he misses an episode of the show
- Zakes has been following the story like a loyal fan but the current witchcraft theme isn't sitting so well with him
Zakes Mda is a very respected author in South Africa and his opinion is highly valued. He recently revealed that he is a huge fan of local soapie, Isidingo.
However, he'll be giving the show a skip for a while as he doesn't feel very comfortable with the current storyline.
Taking to social media, Zakes shared that he has been a fan of Isidingo for many years - since way back in 1998.
The legendary writer has been following the show and never missed an episode until now.
Briefly.co.za noticed that he also told his Twitter fans that the show asked him to write for them, but he didn't want to spoil his viewing experience.
"I’ve stopped watching Isidingo this week. I’ll resume when they’re done with this witchcraft theme. I have watched Isidingo from its first episode in July 1998. Two years later I was invited as a writer but I said no because it was going to spoil my enjoyment."
