This Politician Revealed That He Received A Call From eNCA's Lindsay Dentlinger, See Who It Is!

There have been calls for eNCA's reporter Lindsay Dentlinger to apologise for what had happened on 18 February. You might remember that she did what a lot of people saw as racist and she became the talk of the town.

People came out and made it clear that she should be fired for what she had done and that is because she crossed the line. If you have watched the video, then you probably saw what happened, I would be getting too much into that, what is interesting at this point is that she called someone to apologise for what she did.

And this person is Mkhuleko Hlengwa who is one of the black politicians who she told should keep their masks on, she told Hlengwa that he should keep his mask on after failing to tell Democratic Alliance (DA) leader John Steenhuisen. And as seen on the video, she did this numerous times and this did not sit well with a lot of South Africans.

Go to for more on this. It seems like she felt the need to call Hlengwa and apologise, however, that might not help in any way, the damage has already been done.

Hlengwa took to Twitter to inform the public about the call and some had questions, they were asking what she was apologising for when eNCA could not see anything wrong with what she did.

Looking more into the matter, it might take a lot to fix this matter and maybe eNCA will have to acknowledge that they might have downplayed the seriousness of this issue of racist behaviours. Hlengwa also mentioned in the tweet that he would meet with Dentlinger, probably to get more into what had happened that day.

Things might change for the better, who knows? And as Hlengwa said, apologies are only meaningful when accompanied by a journey, Dentlinger might need to prove that she really regrets saying what she said.

Till then, South Africans are still angry about the whole incident, understandably so and Dentlinger probably should have known better. As for eNCA, maybe they should have refrained from trying to justify Dentlinger's actions and actually find a way to deal with the problem, solve it and move on.

If they had made it clear that they will not tolerate such behaviours, then maybe there would have been a different outcome, but as it is, things are a bit tricky for eNCA. What do you think about this? Please share your thoughts.
