Former SABC boss Motsoeneng formally enters the political arena as he launches his own party to contest next year’s elections.

Motsoeneng confirmed to Sowetan yesterday that he would announce his new political party tomorrow, and that he has his sights on the Union Buildings.

“I am going to contest [against President Cyril] Ramaphosa because I want to be the president of the country,” Motsoeneng said.

“I don’t think Ramaphosa can defeat me, I am going to shock the country.”

Yesterday, Motsoeneng said he was responding to calls from many people across the country who wanted him to contest the 2019 national polls.
