Motsoeneng admits to accepting more than R1m from Bosasa

WATCH: Eusebius chats to Hlaudi Motsoeneng about wanting your vote

President of the African Content Movement (ACM) Hlaudi Motsoeneng has admitted to receiving more than R1 million from corruption-accused facilities management group Bosasa.

This was during a one-on-one interview with Eusebius McKaiser on 702 and CapeTalk.

Motsoeneng says the money was used to pay for his legal fees after he was axed from the SABC.

The former SABC COO insists that Bosasa gave him more than R1.1 million to fight his legal battles for nothing in return.

Motsoeneng has defended his credibility against claims of corruption and maintains that he is a competent leader.

If I was corrupt, I was supposed to be in jail. There are no Hawks or police investigating Hlaudi. None.

Hlaudi is a very good leader. Hlaudi is one of the best people.

The presidential hopeful also vehemently denied fraudulently stating on his SABC application that he had completed his matric.

In 2014, former public protector Thuli Madonsela found that Motsoeneng had lied about his matric certificate.

She [Thuli Madonsela] is wrong. Totally wrong! The person who employed me can tell you... I have never lied about my matric.

Hlaudi Motsoeneng, founder of the African Content Movement

People of South Africa are not stupid. They are aware that I never lied about the matric certificate. I have never said that I have matric.

Motsoeneng says he is proud of his legacy at the SABC and claims to have averted retrenchments at the public broadcaster during his tenure.

He responded to a range of questions, including his track record of financial mismanagement at the SABC, why he left the ANC, how the ACM is funded and why South African should vote for the party.

No one is funding the movement. We, the leaders, are using our money within the movement.

I can't be part of the ANC currently. President Cyril Ramaphosa is having one tongue but is talking many tongues. There are many issues confusing people.

The ANC colluded with other political parties to remove me at the SABC.
