Guptas Leak

In the stockpile of emails that form part of the leaks there is an email address, teammedia2016@gmail.com, which is also known as “media profile”.

The address seems to be a shared account between Bell Pottinger, and the Guptas where media campaigns are discussed.

It was from this email account that Mngxitama was sent a message on 11 March 2016.

The email was titled “Peter Bruce!” and it included an attachment of an opinion article written by Bruce, the Tiso Blackstar editor-at-large. Bruce’s piece was based on a legal letter the Guptas had sent to BizNews editor Alec Hogg.

In the body of the email, Mngxitama is asked: “Pls see, and the part where he writes about Alex (sic) Hogg funders, can you write on this something and send some questions to him, for source of funding, legal/illegal, who are the funders. Thanks.”

The email appears to be an instruction to Mngxitama to write about Hogg.

Hogg, along with Bruce, are among a list of journalists that Mngxitama and the BLF have been attacking.

The #Guptaleaks are part of an investigation by News 24, the Daily Maverick’s investigative unit Scorpio and independent non-profit organisation  amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism.
