Dr Sindi said nobody is safe from a block: “You guys are so funny. Nobody is above a block and neither am I an angel It’s just that I now have a social media manager @MsManager_ so I behave much more than I did in the past.”
Its unclear why Mihlali blocked her but Twitter CSI thinks its about a tweet back in 2018, in which Mihlali supported the notion from Nikki Shange that God could heal HIV/AIDS and that the disease was a state of mind.
A Twitter user and Dr Sindi thought her tweet was problematic and dangerous.

Luyanda Dyani said she did not understand why Dr Sindi had to mention she had been blocked.
“I don’t get why DR Sindi commented that Mihlali has blocked her, naye you will find that there are people that she has blocked on this app too plus she knows that obviously people will side with her and next thing Mihlali must fall. It’s just unnecessary really.”
Dr Sindi is also a human being and if one sees the need to block her I don’t understand why people should make a big deal out of it.Yes she’s a nice person but I’m pretty sure Mihlali had a reasons to block her.STOP DICTATING OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVE!!! Yesssses
