The notion that media must hold government to account is false, says media owner Mzwanele Manyi. 

On Monday it was announced that Manyi’s company Lodidox bought Gupta-owned news channel ANN7 (Infinity Media) for R300m and The New Age newspaper (TNA Media) for R150m.

He believes it is parliament that should hold government to account, and that the media should strengthen the role of parliament.
