I have done nothing wrong - Hlaudi Motsoeneng

Former chief operations officer of the SABC, Hlaudi Motsoeneng held a media briefing in Auckland Park on Wednesday to address all the pending matters at the public broadcaster.

EWN reporter, Gia Nicolaides says a number of local artists said they support Motsoeneng 100% because he has done something for the people of South Africa, saying they are in a better position since he implemented the 90% local content rule.

Nicolaides says Motsoeneng believes that he has done nothing wrong and that he is looking forward to the disciplinary hearing.

Hlaudi Motsoeneng is quite adamant that he is done nothing wrong and he will continue fighting for the local industry to be broadcast on the SABC.

I think the main message here is that he is got the support from the local industry, particularly in the music industry.
