Addressing supporters outside of Johannesburg High Court former SABC boss spoke of his ambitions to run for the president, saying that the ANC should have done more to protect him
Despite facing legal battles, Hlaudi Motsoeneng is still clinging to dreams of running the country one day.
Addressing supporters who had gathered outside the court where he had appeared, he revealed that he was going to shock the nation when he runs for the top job and, according to him, go on to lead the country.
“ Don’t listen to the politicians now. The only person that you need to listen and the only person who will deliver is Hlaudi,” he said.
“ Don’t listen to people who are talking about qualifications, there is wisdom in me.”
As far as the corruption allegations against him Hlaudi shrugged them off, saying that his corruption had been in the interests of black empowerment. He also blasted the ANC for not protecting him from the charges against him.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation has stated that they will be attempting to stop the broadcaster’s pension fund from paying out Motsoeneng’s multi-million rand pension.
Another legal dispute against the aspiring president is with the Special Investigating Unit, which seeks to recover more than R20 million from him. This includes money lost through improper dismissals and appointments under his reign at SABC.
According to EWN his lawyers have argued that the newest evidence brought forward should not be admissible, accusing the SABC of attempting to open a new case against Hlaudi.
Briefly.co.za reported about three months ago that he talked about his plans to become the president. He first announced his plans to run for the highest office during the 70th birthday of King Goodwill Zwelithini and said that his decision was formed by the lackluster leaders South Africa currently has.
