SOME readers have expressed concern at the publication, on our Insight page on Thursday, of a long article by Dr Iqbal Survé, the executive chairman of the group which owns Independent Newspapers, and the Cape Times.
They fear that this may herald a change in the policy of the newspaper under its new owners.
It does not.
Our opinion pages are open to anyone who has an interesting argument to make about anything, whether or not we agree with it. Provided the argument is fairly well expressed, thought-provoking and likely to be of interest to our readers, the article is welcome on the Insight page, and if it prompts responses in the form of letters or other articles, we will publish those too.
Concerns that the Cape Times may become a vehicle for the expression of the corporate interests of the Sekunjalo Group, and/or the political interests of a faction in the ANC to whom the new owners are said to be close, are unfounded.
