Vabakshnee Chetty is seen on SABC News (DStv 404), anchors SABC3's primetime flagship daily news bulletin and is a well-known voice as news reader on radio on SAfm.
Vabakshnee Chetty was off for a few days during which a big engagement ring got slipped on her finger.
Vabakshnee Chetty, whose name means "come wish", returned on Tuesday evening to SABC television news again for the first time - now newly engaged.
But the usually chatty Chetty didn't say a word about it.
Neither did her co-anchor Peter Ndoro or any of the other presenters during the usual small talk moments of the hour long news bulletin (she did however quip in a quick joke that she was away for just a few days and Peter Ndoro already forgot her name after he struggled to pronounce it correctly).
SABC star reporter Chriselda Lewis was the first SABC newser to publicly congratulate Vabakshnee Chetty on her engagement, saying "the rock is gorgeous".
