WATCH: Hlaudi says he has a plan to help ‘people with albinion’

The ACM leader criticised the ANC for not having ideas like his.

A clip from African Content Movement (ACM) leader Hlaudi Motsoeneng this week on the elections campaign trail had a rather unexpected ending.

The super-confident former SABC chief operating officer seems to be having a whale of a time after recently entering politics.

He can be heard on the clip denying that his party is a front for former president Jacob Zuma.

“Zuma party? No, you are playing! There is no Zuma here. There is only one future president, and it’s Hlaudi.

“The new testament is the ACM. The ANC … they don’t have ideas! How to turn around South Africa. How to make sure they empower young people, people with disabilities … people with albinion!”

The crowd enthusiastically agreed, though it’s highly likely Motsoeneng meant to say ‘albinism’.

People with albinism are notoriously discriminated against in South Africa, with reports that they can even be murdered and used in traditional medicine due to superstitions about their congenital condition, which results in them having no melanin in their skin.
