CARTOON: The Smallanyana Parties
By Dr Jack & Curtis.
The ACM party launched a few months ahead of the elections and having received just over 4,800 votes, the organisation failed to make the cut to secure a seat in Parliament.
Leader of the African Content Movement (ACM) Hlaudi Motsoeneng has insisted that members unknowingly voted for other parties out of confusion.
He said his party had 5,000 agents at IEC centres across the country and they voted for ACM, but somehow their votes were not reflected on the IEC results board.
By Friday afternoon, the ACM had only received just under 4,000 votes (0.03%), much less than what is required to get one seat in Parliament.
Hlaudi Motsoeneng on Saturday addressed a crowd of supporters during a rally at a stadium in Harrismith, Free State.
ACM leader Hlaudi Motsoeneng said the ANC and the DA print posters and call it service delivery, but his party would bring actual services to the people.
A number of politicians from different parties spent their Eastern weekend electioneering at various churches throughout the country ahead of the 8 May elections.
Hlaudi Motsoeneng, the leader of the African Content Movement, says that it is unfair that smaller parties are not given equal coverage in the media.
The high court ruled that the ACM had no right to dictate to the public broadcaster on how it provides live coverage.
The SABC argued that it had no obligation to grant any political party live coverage.
The SABC says it's opposing this application because the launch will be covered by its news division.
In a video posted on Facebook and Twitter, Hlaudi Motsoeneng says he is the man with a plan for South Africa.
African Content Movement leader Hlaudi Motsoeneng wants former president Jacob Zuma to join the ACM. Motsoeneng told Eyewitness News on Sunday Zuma shared the same views on transformation as his party.
Hlaudi Motsoeneng has said he intends to take the African National Congress (ANC) on and become president of South Africa.
Hlaudi Motsoeneng explains to Radio 702's Eusebius McKaiser how his party, the African Content Movement, will tackle the education system and make it better.
The president of the African Content Movement says that he was cleared of wrongdoing at an internal SABC disciplinary hearing 'by a white person'.
Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser on Radio 702, former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng confirms that he received R1.1 million from Bosasa for his legal fees.
