Journalist Rejects Claims She Was Paid by Crime Intelligence

South African police whistleblower Dhanajaya Naidoo has told the Zondo commission into state capture that several journalists, including Sunday Times associate editor Ranjeni Munusamy, were paid by Crime Intelligence. Munusamy says the allegations are an attempt to destroy her credibility. In her supporting affidavit to the commission, Munusamy said she was "utterly horrified by the allegations that I have been paid from the [Secret Service Account]. These allegations are entirely baseless and false".
