Former SABC chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng has announced his intention of launching a political party, going so far as to say he believes he has a chance of contesting the presidency in 2019 and that he doesn’t think Cyril Ramaphosa and the ANC can defeat him.
The party will be called the African Content Movement (ACM).
The former COO circulated an invitation to media, saying he had a “historical” announcement to make. It said the announcement was not just for journalists but for “all South Africans who demand real transformation”.
It also had a slogan, “the future is in your hands”.
