Former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Chief Operations Office (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng doesn’t want to contest a female candidate. He says he would have South Africa’s vote if he became a politician or even if he ran for presidency.
Motsoeneng who has been suspended pending the conclusion of a fresh disciplinary process, held a lengthy briefing in Johannesburg Auckland park on Wednesday where he defended the controversial policies he’s implemented at the national broadcaster.
A lot of musicians pledged to support him , he was joined by dozen of local musicians. Hlaudi indicated that he represents the majority of South Africans and their interests , therefore he could go into politics.
“Others wanted to be president and I said I support a woman. You can’t say you support a woman and then contest against them. Let’s give women a chance.”
SABC COO may have been referring to presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma but as a starting point, he would have to be a member of parliament to stand a chance of running for president.
