Hlaudi says he’ll stop social grants if his party wins elections

    Hlaudi Motsoeneng leaves the CCMA offices after his hearing was postponed.

    Hlaudi Motsoeneng has accused the South African government of inducing laziness among its citizens through social grants.

    Motsoeneng said this during the launch of his newly formed political party, African Content Movement, in Milpark on Tuesday. While addressing the media and dozens of followers, Motsoeneng said his party would do away with the social grants system.

    “We must run away from giving people grants because we are building a lazy nation. In South Africa, people will always ask you what you can do for them and not what they can do for themselves. People need opportunities and not grants,” said Motsoeneng.
