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.
