Retired ANN7 and The New Age editor-in-chief Moegsien Williams has come under fire after he accused the now-defunct television news channel’s founding editor Rajesh Sundaram of lying about meetings with former president Jacob Zuma.
Williams has submitted his affidavit in response to Sundaram’s evidence at the commission of inquiry into state capture and elected not to cross-examine him or give evidence as he has not done anything improper, committed any crime, fraud of corruption.
He said he did not think his testimony will assist the commission.
Sundaram told the commission chair Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo that Williams discussed editorial policies in meetings with Zuma in 2013.
Williams insisted that no editorial policies were discussed at the meeting he attended.
