Hlaudi Motsoeneng, the former head of the SABC, had some fiery words for the ANC at his recent campaign trail in Soweto.
As reported by The Star, the leader of the African Content Movement (ACM), Motsoeneng, revealed that he would basically sing like a canary if he was ever summoned to Deputy Chief Justice, Raymond Zondo’s commission of inquiry into state capture.
“If I go to the commission [of inquiry into state capture], some of the ANC people are going to be in trouble because I was not captured by them — they tried to capture me, but I capture myself, unfortunately,” he said.
Motsoeneng admits he is corrupt
In an attempt to mask any accountability he may have carried from the looting that occurred at the SABC — with him at the helm — Motsoeneng said that he would even admit, on record, that he too is corrupt. Except, somehow, his corruption is ‘good’ corruption.
“Maybe I should accept that I am corrupt, and I am accepting it. I am corrupt. My corruption is the good one because it is turning around the lives of the people of South Africa. That is my corruption.
“If they call me at the state capture commission, I am going to enjoy myself and I am going to tell them ‘yes, I am corrupt, but this is the good corruption,” he added.
In riling up the emotions of the people he was addressing, Motsoeneng failed to give any direction into who it was, in the ANC, he was referring to.
Whether this was, in his own fashion, a way of telling us, for the first time, that he indeed had a hand in the plundering of our public broadcaster can only be speculated.
ACM on land exproptiation
Motsoeneng also revealed that his political party’s aim was to take hold of power in Gauteng. He lashed out at the ANC and the EFF for devising ‘weak’ transformative plans on the land issue.
If anything, Motsoeneng said, there was no need to expropriate land without compensation.
“The government must buy the land back and give it to those people who want the land,” the ACM leader said.
