Public Protector ‘ditches’ eNCA for Guptas’ ANN7 news

Our new PP, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, has reportedly ‘ordered’ her staff to switch from watching eNCA news to Gupta-owned ANN7 news.

The Mail & Guardian reports that Adv. Mkhwebane told the IT department at her offices that all TV screens are to show ANN7 news – part of the Gupta media network – and no longer feature eNCA news. In this day and age, the Public Protector’s office clearly can’t show more than one news channel…

Now, while something as seemingly insignificant as a change of news channels is hardly cause for concern, some folks are a little sceptical of the move as the Guptas currently find themselves at odds with Treasury and in the middle of a potentially catastrophic state capture report – which Mkhwebane is also sitting on thanks to an urgent interdict by none other than Des van Rooyen and Zuma –.

The paper reports that Mkhwebane wanted the shift from eNCA to ANN7 to give her staff a “broader perspective,” lol… sure.
