JOHANNESBURG – Former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng, who was fired from the public broadcaster, says he has his eyes on the presidency of South Africa.
During an event organised by Incredible Happenings Ministries leader Prophet Paseka “Mboro”, Motsoeneng was joined by civil organisation #NotInMy Name. He said he would correct the many wrongs done by government, if he was president.
“People are saying there is no money in South Africa, [but] there is money in South Africa. I saw that at SABC, practically. When I said local content … that the artists be given money, most of the millions were being given to outsiders [foreign artists],” said Motsoeneng to applause.
“When it comes to our own people, South Africa, you only get cents but outsiders get the money.
“This is the time to stop that. To stop that, Hlaudi is going to be the future president of South Africa. Thank you.”
The #NotInMyNameSA and Incredible Happenings Ministries discussion, brought together all sectors of society, which included pastors, sangomas and traditional leaders to discuss the ongoing spike of violence against women and femicide.
Motsoeneng said South Africans often imitate the lives portrayed in television series and soapies.
“Africans love these soapies … where there are fights. People who are together, wife and husband, they watch those soapies. I’m talking from what I know, what I have observed,” said the former SABC boss.
“People who watch those soapies, because it’s fights and fights, the cheating, the man is cheating and the woman is cheating, even if someone is not cheating but your mindset [because] you watch these dangerous soapies, you think your partner is cheating.”
