You need to stifle the influences of corruption in any way you can.— Wayne Duvenage, Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse
Bell Pottinger, KPMG, SAP, McKinsey…
MultiChoice could suffer the same fate if it continues broadcasting ANN7.
So said corruption-busting Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse’s (Outa) Wayne Duvenage in an open letter in which he asked MultiChoice to explain its stance regarding the Gupta-owned media channel.
MultiChoice will pay ANN7 a minimum of R245 million until 31 July 2018, according to MyBroadband.
We are mindful of media freedom and freedom of speech and endorse it ourselves, but we sincerely ask that MultiChoice do the right thing by heeding the call by civil society for greater transparency and decisive action against entities linked to possible criminal activities and State Capture.— Wayne Duvenage, Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse
MultiChoice customers currently don’t have the option of not getting ANN7, as it’s on every available bouquet.
