- Hlaudi Motsoeneng says that he warned Jacob Zuma not to trust the ANC
- However, he says the former president did not need heed his words
- Additionally, Motsoeneng defended Zuma and criticised Thuli Madonsela
Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng claims to have warned Jacob Zuma that the ANC would take the former president to jail.
Motsoeneng made the statement while speaking to the media outside the Zondo Commission on Friday.
"I warned Zuma to move away," Motsoeneng said. "I said they are going to take you to jail."
Motsoeneng went on to say that he still supports Zuma as "so far, there is no finding against him", Briefly.co.za has gathered. Motsoeneng added that Zuma was "not a criminal", according to News24.
The former SABC boss did, however, slam Thuli Madonsela, saying, "You can't trust that woman."
Motsoeneng also used this moment to say that he had grown dissatisfied with the ANC and that this was a major reason for his departure. Motsoeneng, who was accused of corruption and maladmistration while heading up the SABC, later formed the African Content Movement (ACM) which failed to win a single seat in this year's general election.
Motsoeneng says that he warned Zuma not to trust the ANC, but that Zuma did not listen to him.
" The still loves them [the ANC]," Motsoeneng explained.
