Cape Town — Manaka Ranaka, the sister of radio personality Dineo Ranaka, is standing behind her sister after Dineo’s recent struggles with mental health and depression.
Taking to her Instagram timeline, Manaka called Dineo her #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) and thanked her for fighting through her battles.

Dineo has been in the headlines lately since admitting to struggling with her mental health. About two weeks ago, Dineo checked herself into a mental wellness clinic.
She spent the weekend in the facility but it was later revealed that she checked herself out just three days later following an incident with one of the workers, Sunday World reported.
A source at the hospital who asked not to be named said Ranaka had a heated confrontation with a healthcare worker who was on the phone when the radio host approached and thought he was taking videos of her.
Dineo confronted the worker, who told her to shut up before the confrontation ensued and the worker told her not to take her frutrations out on him.
Anele Mdoda was one of those who came to the aid of Dineo, saying she deserved to be shown some grace in the situation, no matter how wrong she might be. “She has said I’m not okay … and needs support at this sensitive and fragile time.”
I would have liked to see a little grace towards uDineo no matter how wrong you seem to believe she is. She has said, I am not okay, I need light and I am going through a rough time and here we are peeking into a really sensitive and fragile time. Love people especially when YOU… https://t.co/5BrWgKl5zk
