encaEWN reports that eNCA says it has started consultations with its employees over its policy around the wearing of “doeks” following claims that the broadcaster canned a story because the reporter was wearing a headscarf.  

News director Mapi Mhlangu said they were reviewing the policy with its staff and added:  “The issue of a doek is merely a symptom for a larger call for change in contemporary South Africa.  It is not an issue that could be resolved by quick tactical intervention.”  But the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has accused the broadcaster of being anti-black.
