SABC is captured by MultiChoice and Guptas: Mantshantsha
The pay-TV company MultiChoice has released a statement denying any wrong doing regarding a meeting held with the SABC board, saying that the meeting was not a secret.
The minutes to a meeting held in 2013 were leaked to the public.
Deputy Editor at Financial Mail, Sikonathi Mantshantsha says MultiChoice has captured the SABC and it has been captured by the Guptas too.
It paid R100 million to the SABC in order to influence the policy on digital migration so it can continue claiming its monopoly of the the pay-TV market and it went for R100 million per year for 5 years .Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy editor at Financial Mail
I spoke to Hlaudi Motsoeneng when he was still with the SABC and he was proud to have clinched this deal that only allowed MultiChoice to have its way on government policy and also gave away all the SABC's archives.Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy editor at Financial Mail
