In a miraculous plot twist, writers at Generations The Legacy have brought Jack Mabaso's character back to life, eight years after he died in the story line.
The villian made his debut appearance on the re-scripted version of the South African soap opera on Tuesday night.
Although Jack Mabaso trended on Twitter during the show, his return won't guarantee increased viewership.
ZAlebs editor, Zibuyile Dladla says his come-back seems like it is a ploy to get the ratings up.
We asked our readers and one said that they feel that their intelligence is being insulted by Mfundi Mvundla and the scriptwriters.— Zibuyile “Zee” Dladla, ZAlebs editor
