Cape Town – Generations star Nambitha Mpumlwana has reportedly been fired from the popular SABC1 soap due to being too demanding, reports the Sunday Sun.

Mpumlwana's alleged insistence on "Hollywood treatment" and her becoming too much to handle has resulted in her contract not being renewed. Unnamed actors also confirmed to the Sunday Sun that she's difficult to work with.
This follows reports that surfaced early last year accusing Mpumlwana of being difficult to work with, showing up late for shoots and being a brag, according to TVSA.

The actress' Generations character, Mawande Memela, will reportedly disappear by being booked into a mental institution.

According to TVSA, she will still be seen on Generations until mid-August.

Mpumlwana, a prominent face on local screens, is best known for her role in Oscar-winning South African film Tsotsi as well as local TV shows The Lab and Shado's.

She has also guest starred in 7de Laan and Isidingo and had a role in the film Safe House, opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.
