Hot & Not
When eNCA reporter Nontobeko Sibisi had her story pulled off air because she chose to wear a doek during its filming, she emailed her colleagues about it. She could never have expected the outrage her story would spark on social media, nor the solidarity she would be shown as women, one after the other, donned their finest to their jobs this week.
Ever heard of Africa Day? Seems the bosses at eNCA had not. What they do know are rules, policy. Ever heard the word ‘flexibility’? Again, eNCA clearly hasn’t. If its bosses find doeks unfit for viewing, they need only take a look at what Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf choose to wear.
