Having announced his intention weeks ago to run as president of South Africa Hlaudi Motsoeneng is now set to launch his own political party.

The scandal ridden former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng has his eye on the presidency and will announce the creation of his own party as a “vehicle to get into Parliament” soon.

Motsoeneng stated that: “You know, I’m the best leader in South Africa, on Wednesday, adding that people couldn’t see it when he was at the SABC because of all the drama at the broadcaster at the time.

“I can tell you, I’m unique.”

He views his independent mind as his major strength.

He was fairly mum on the specifics of his party but said all will be revealed at a press conference in Johannesburg on Thursday.

The press conference will be at the Milpark Hotel in Auckland Park, Johannesburg.
