Black Twitter Reacts To SABC 3 Replacing Isidingo With Isidingo Repeats! The series final episode of the 21 year old soapie aired on the 12th of March and some fans are having a hard time accepting it.
Friday 13 March and Monday 16 March will be the 21st birthday celebrations episodes followed by various Isidingo themes from Tuesday. Isidingo was officially dismissed in November 2019 with the broadcaster blaming poor audience ratings during the time slot, a decline in revenue and poor return on investment.
Isidingo fans took to Twitter to express what they feel, not only about the soapie coming to an end but about SABC ‘s decision to broadcast repeats of the series.
Even though it is clear SABC isn’t going backwards on their decision ,some fans are hoping a different channel will pick up from where SABC left off. Here are some of the reactions from fans of the show.

Why did channel cancel Isidingo only for them to replace the actual show with repeats of the damn show? More than 70 people lost jobs because of the cancellation of the show. Yhuu hayi guys no man
