Former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng, who was axed from the public broadcaster, says he is now eyeing the presidency of South Africa.

Addressing an event organised by Incredible Happenings Ministries leader Prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng and civil rights group #NotInMyName, Motsoeneng said on Tuesday night that there were many wrongs he would correct once he was in the top seat at the Union Buildings.

“People are saying there is no money in South Africa, [but] there is money in South Africa. I saw that at SABC, practically. When I said local content … that the artists be given money, most of the millions were being given to outsiders [foreign artists],” said Motsoeneng to applause.

“When it comes to our own people, South Africa, you only get cents but outsiders get the money.

“This is the time to stop that. To stop that, Hlaudi is going to be the future president of South Africa. Thank you.”
