Two weeks after DRUM broke the story of Generations’ actor Buyile Mdladla exposing himself to a 20-year-old fan, Kimberleigh Khune, our phones haven’t stopped ringing and our inboxes have been filled to capacity with Buyile’s fans and supporters expressing shock and disdain, and some readers condemning him for his actions.
