Hlaudi Motsoeneng recently claimed that he was an educated man, so educated that the Wits Business School had included his works in their syllabus.

However, the institution took to social media to clarify the situation, bursting the former SABC COO's bubble:

"Hlaudi Motsoeneng was invited to take part in a breakfast panel discussion at WBS on 6 Dec 2013. A guest speaker does not make an academic. At no stage has Mr Motsoeneng lectured at WBS, nor has any material authored by him formed part of the curriculum of any of our programmes."
