Hlaudi Motsoeneng is confident that his party is going to be causing waves at the polls when the results start coming out. Motsoeneng is convinced that his party is the answer to South Africa’s problems.

While discussing his chances at the polls with Masego Rahlaga from eNCA, Motsoeneng showed no shortage of optimism.

With a party that’s barely four months old it should be a near impossible task for him, but the charismatic leader doesn’t seem to be satisfied with just winning a seat in parliament.

“I’m going to rule South Africa, I know the people of South Africa want someone who is a doer, I’m a doer. I know our implementation plan is six months.”

According to Motsoeneng the party is not daunted by the country’s problems and have plans to turn things around immediately.

“It is the only party that says that within six months we will fix South Africa”

Motsoeneng promises to increases the salaries in the public sector and puts an end to retrenchments. In addition, the ACM plans to tackle the quality of education as well as unemployment.

“We will make sure no one who comes from university will be unemployed”

Asked about detractors who point to the failures at the SABC, Motsoeneng urges South African not to be swayed by propaganda and embrace the fact that the ACM is the only party able to solve South Africa’s problems.

“Members of ANC, DA and other political parties they should stay where they are with their parties, but they should vote ACM if they want to change their lives it’s only ACM that can change their lives.”

And as for where he sees himself once the votes have been tallied: “I’m aiming to be president of the country, bottom and klaar.”

Motsoeneng’s party – African Content Movement 

Motsoeneng formed the African Content Movement four months ago. The party was launched at the Milpark Hotel in Johannesburg.

According to the party’s manifesto, Motsoeneng promised to distribute land. He proposed that government enter into transactions with landowners instead of expropriating land.

In addition, Motsoeneng vowed to improve service delivery and race relations in the country, and stressed the importance of education.

“I have seen people especially those with many certificates, the first thing they’ll show you is their wall (of accolades) but when you ask how they’ve changed the lives of people in South Africa – dololo!”

Legal battles

Back in April, Motsoeneng took the SABC to court for their refusal to live broadcast his party’s manifesto. At the time, he said:

“If Ramaphosa coughs, the SABC is running after him. So emerging parties must get more airtime because they are unknown; everybody knows what the big three parties stand for.”

He felt that small parties were being unfairly treated and said there is no such things as a “small party.” Motsoeneng added that small parties are equal and have a right to their manifestos being aired.

The SABC didn’t’ budge, saying in a statement that the ACM’s manifesto launch would be covered as a news story as “the SABC has not provided live coverage of manifesto launches to any of the new and existing parties with no representation in Parliament.”
