Cape Town – Kaya 959 FM has reportedly responded to the social media backlash against Dineo Ranaka, saying that there is no disharmony between her and Sol Phenduka, as she is the main anchor of the 959 Breakfast show and Sol is the co-host and traffic reporter.
The radio station’s remarks came after Tweeps slammed Dineo for “belittling” and “speaking over Sol” on a number of occasions during their morning show.
In a video circulated on social media, Phenduka is seen raising his hand at least twice in an attempt to speak.

According to Times Live, Kaya 959 managing director Sibongile Mtyali said that the station has confidence in both Dineo and Sol’s talent.
“Structure of 959 Breakfast is that Dineo Ranaka is the main anchor and Sol Phenduka the co-host and traffic reporter. We are aware that a female lead anchor on a breakfast show is unusual in the SA radio landscape but we have full confidence in both Dineo and Sol’s talent and their ability to navigate the dynamic of the show,” said Mtyali as quoted by the report.
