Renowned journo Asanda Magaqa leaves Gupta’s ANN7

25 November 2014 – RENOWNED reporter Asanda Magaqa is the latest high profile departure from the Gupta-owned ANN7, as channel bosses seem to be clamping down on dissent.

It seems Magaqa, who has presumably been fired, tweeted the news yesterday afternoon.

ANN7 is the 24-hour news channel launched by the politically connected Gupta family.

City Press reports that ANN7 is keeping mum on Asanda Magaqa’s tweet and “would not answer questions today about a tweet posted by one of its reporters that she had to be escorted from the company’s premises.”
