  • The Public News Hub: ANC Must Not Attack Press Freedom, says DA... The Democratic Alliance has told the African National Congress that attacking the Beeld Editor, Adriaan Basson, about his opinion piece on the Nkandla Scandal, will not make the whole saga go away.

  • Politicsweb: ANC attack on Beeld Editor won't make Nkandlagate questions disappear... The ANC's attack on Beeld Editor, Adriaan Basson, is the latest instalment in a series of desperate attempts to duck accountability on the Nkandlagate saga. It is an equally sad bid to deflect attention from the President's hopelessly inadequate response to Parliament and the intended re-establishment of a toothless ad hoc Committee on the matter.
