Anele Mdoda tells it like it is when it comes to the 'Sister Code'

It seems that men have an unspoken set of codes, known as 'Bro Code', that govern how to keep the peace in their friendships.

Anele Mdoda has taken it upon herself to compile a 'Sister Code' to help women along in their friendships with no drama.

702's Azania Mosaka spoke to her about how she came up with the list and why it's important for all women.

This is the 'unofficial official Constitution' of The Sister Code:

  1. You may not ask my man, boyfriend or husband for a lift. There is Uber, this is 2016
  2. You may not dish up for my man at a braai - if I'm not there he can dish up for himself. The only 3 people that are allowed to dish up for him is his mom, me and the waiter
  3. Do not be a cougar to my younger brother, that's not on
  4. If you're mutual friends and one them steals the other one's man, you have to pick a side. You can't be friends with both
  5. If I'm telling a story in front of you and other people are there and I add in a little bit of spice, you can't come out and correct me and show everyone that I'm elevating the story.

Listen to her explanation below:

It's an intimate thing to dish up for someone. Come on, another language of love is to ask if you're hungry, now if you're dishing up for them, isn't that the biggest I love you?
