Motsoeneng founded his political organisation in 2018 after facing serious allegations of corruption and fraud levelled against him by the SABC. According to The South African, during his tenure as the national broadcaster's COO.
The SABC says Motsoeneng owes the broadcaster millions of rands which includes R850 000 for his legal fees and R11 million for money he received from a R30 million deal. The R11 million was regarded as a 'success fee'.
Motsoeneng promised to pay the national broadcaster back in instalments of R20 000 a month.
South Africans react to Motsoeneng's political promises
South Africans have had mixed reactions to Mostsoeneng's promise to deliver services in six months. Some people think that the leader of ACM might actually deliver while others seem to think he should not be in politics.
Here's what they had to say:
"Hlaudi should be campaigning at Weskoppies."
"Hlaudi Motsoeneng should've started a union, not a political party."
"Hlaudi Motsoeneng, ha ho ya tshwanang le wena! He says he will deliver his manifesto after the elections."
"It's doable, with clear plans, management of resources, political will & ability to execute plans. In fact, the motive of the ANC has not really been to provide services but to be celebrities at the feeding trough, that's all. All depts across the board, all tainted, that's dismal."
"Please….he couldn’t get water and electricity bills paid at SABC…what about a whole dysfunctional municipalities. We need good turn around strategy."
"IEC Should suggest mental wellness examination as part of its requirement before organisations can be registered."
