JOHANNESBURG - Government is concerned about reports that there's corruption in the deal between Multichoice and ANN7.

Communications Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi has commented about leaked Gupta emails which apparently reveal Multichoice paid ANN7 an extra R25-million.

It also increased annual payments to the Gupta-owned channel by over three-fold.

"From government's point of view, we don't feature into party contracts," said Kubayi.

"What would concern us is if there are issues around policies being defaulted. This is not something we would get into the fray for."

Multichoice has denied these allegations.
