TO LOUD cheers from his excited supporters, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, once again claimed he will be the next president of the country. He told his supporters this outside the Gauteng South High Court in Joburg on Thursday.
He was in court to fight for his pension payout.
“I’m going to run for president and lead this country. Do not listen to people who are coming to you now and saying they want to rule you,” said Motsoeneng.
“There is wisdom in Hlaudi. I know I am correct and will be correct even in my grave. If the ANC says they stand for transformation, why did they not protect me? If you are a leader you do not need to run to the people. That is why people have come to support me here.”
Motsoeneng claimed his exit from the SABC was orchestrated by the ANC and other political parties that did not want to see the changes he was bringing to the public broadcaster.
About 200 young people sang and danced outside the court.
Chairman of the Gauteng South African Arts and Culture Youth Forum Thabiso Mlhamvu told Daily Sun: “We are here to support Hlaudi because we regard him as the father of 90%.”
