THE person who’s going to change South Africa, whether we like it or not, is Hlaudi Motsoeneng. These were the words of the African Content Movement’s president, in a video posted on YouTube on Tuesday. In the video, Motsoeneng invites people to be part of his party manifesto launch at Curries Fountain Sports Development Centre in Durban, KZN, next Saturday. “For the first time in the history of South Africa after 1995, you will see a huge change in our manifesto. “Our manifesto is an action manifesto, it is an implementation manifesto. “We are talking about words we are talking about action,” said Motsoeneng.“I have a plan to turn around the lives of our people.” He said he would change South Africa within six months. “It will be happiness in South Africa,” he said. But social media had a different view. Many people brought up the condition Motsoeneng left the SABC in. @HelloCalvin8 tweeted: “Imagine voting for someone who thinks being invited to universities and government institutions to give lectures makes him a good leader. Today SABC is in a financial crisis because of his 90% local content.”Motsoeneng said his tenure at SABC proved he had the ability to bring change.“During my time at the SABC in all the positions I took, I helped change people’s lives.” He said he found the public broadcaster in a financial crisis. “I came in and changed things around. The six years I was COO of the SABC were happy times. Three months after I left things fell apart.”
