Mr Carrim saying they used clandestine ways, especially Naspers boss Koos Bekker, to achieve this deal.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
He was very clear, using very interesting words, who is behind this thing and why he believes that Naspers is this monopoly which entrenched what he calls 'policy capture' with this deal.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
What I have disseminated from him, all I have collected is that Naspers, through Mr Bekker, did not want government to do this and they did everything they can to make sure they kill government's policy when it comes to this deal about set-top boxes and subsiding the encryption, which means they wanted to be the dominant player they still are today.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
