JOHANNESBURG – Controversial former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng has officially launched his political party called the African Content Movement (ACM).
Motsoeneng said his party is ready for the 2019 elections and is registered with the Electoral Commission to contest the national elections.
He said he’s aiming for nothing but the presidency.
He sent a warning to President Cyril Ramaphosa that his days as president are numbered.
The leader of ACM said the political parties offered him deputy positions but turned them down because he wants to be president.
“With you people of South Africa, we are going to eat change, we are going touch change [and] we are going to feel change when I’m the president of the country.”
He says under his leadership, everything produced locally will be 90% South African.
“Our movement is going to stand for the culture and the tradition of South Africa.”
He insists he will be the next president, “And I’m ready for Msholozi [Jacob Zuma] and I’m going to take him head-on. I’m ready for Ramaphosa, I’m ready for them.”
He said his party’s manifesto will be released soon, he added, “The issue that we need to talk about is how do we make sure that our own people are billionaires.”
