Johannesburg - eNCA senior anchor Andrew Barnes has shown remorse for mocking Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga live on air and would return to his anchoring position following a two-week suspension, eNCA said on Monday.

"He has shown remorse for his conduct and the company has also accepted his internal apology. The nature of the sanction remains a matter between eNCA and Barnes.
