Mzwanele Manyi, now the owner of former Gupta-owned ANN7 and The New Age addressed the media on Wednesday in Midrand, Johannesburg, at the ANN7 headquarters to announce the shareholders of his company, Lodidox. 

These were some of the best moments. Watch.

Manyi said in his capacity as the chairperson of Lodidox (Pty) Ltd, he had received numerous demands from several media houses asking him to reveal the shareholders register of the company.
