Generations: The Legacy lead actor Rapulana Seiphemo is expected back at work in two weeks.

The soapie's publicist, Gaaratwe Mokhethi, this week said Seiphemo was recovering well after his horrific car accident, and would report to work early next month.

"He's contracted to us. He's still part of the family. We can't wait to have him back," she said.

Mokhethi said the show's producers had been keeping in touch with the actor since he was critically injured earlier this year.

"He's still not 100% as he'll be continuing to take his medication at work," she said.

Seiphemo was not available for comment.

In February, the actor was involved in a fatal car crash on the N14 near Diepsloot that left three people dead and three others, including Seiphemo, critically injured. The actor was treated in the intensive care unit of Milpark Hospital, while the other two were treated in public hospitals.

Seiphemo and Connie Ferguson were among the few actors brought back to rescue the soapie in August 2014 after Generations producer Mfundi Vundla axed 16 principal cast members when they went on strike demanding better pay, contracts and royalties. After a break of a few months, the refurbished Generations: The Legacy was launched on December 1.

Meanwhile, Generations - The Legacy leading lady Ferguson is parting ways with the soapie after a year and a half.

Gaaratwe said Ferguson who plays the role Karabo would not be replaced.

"We'll have other actors join the show and give names once the time is right," Gaaratwe said.
