COPE calls for ANN7 shutdown


Government should reconsider the road freight system in the wake of Public Service and Administration Minister Collins Chabane's death, Cope said on Tuesday.

JOHANNESBURG - The Congress of the People (Cope)  is calling for a recall of ANN7’s broadcasting licence following its sale to former government spokesman Mzwanele Manyi.

Cope says the television station should be closed.

On Monday it was announced that Gupta company Oakbay had sold ANN7 and the New Age newspaper to Manyi, raising eyebrows about the deal .


Cope wants to know if Independent Communications Authority of SA, Icasa, approved the deal.

The party says it is planning a march against corruption by the Gupta family.
