The Hlaudi and Faith love story

The Hlaudi Moetsoneng story and how he manages to stay in power at the SABC is just getting more bizarre by the day.
After the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) told this corrupt lying psycho to bugger off and vacate his position as Chief Operations Officer of the SABC he pitched up as “an ordinary employee” willing to scrub the toilets of Auckland Park. The next day the SABC board reappointed him in the same position as “Acting” COO for the next three months and a few days later as permanent COO again, the very same position the SCA told him to vacate.
Not only that. He got a bonus of R11.4 million (part of a total of R33 million bonus) and a pay hike from R3.8 mil per year to R4.2 million per year
SABC gives Hlaudi his old job back
After an outcry by the opposition parties, the media and public…the useless ANC in charge of the SABC (the State Broadcaster) said “it was the last straw” and that they wanted a parliamentary probe into his appointment and the fitness of the board to hold office.
ANC wants SABC board probed What utter rubbish! Who the hell are they trying to fool? The SABC along with ICASA falls directly under the authority of the Minister of Communications Faith Muthambi, the corrupt former mayor of Makhado (Louis Trichardt) . She is Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s boss.
She gave tenders to family members and a boyfriend and sold a luxury vehicle still owned by the municipality and pocketed the money. To top it all…she has a law degree.

Municipal manager suspended on fraud and nepotism charges
She is alleged to have appointed her cousin without following due process as a librarian at the municipality. Overpaying a company (R900,000) – reportedly owned by a boyfriend Stanley Radzilani – for a road construction project it failed to execute. Original contract was R4.5million he got R5.4million for work that was never done.
She was vehemently upset about all the charges and her suspension and denied that Stanley Radzilani was her boyfriend. Methinks it was a case of “The lady doth protest too much”.
She also awarded the previous SABC CEO, Frans Matlala, an R18 million golden handshake for terminating his five year contract after him serving just four months into the term. No reason was put forward.
Then the lying, thieving Hlaudi Motsoeneng was appointed after claiming he had a matric certificate which he didn’t have, of course.
Nevertheless…That is how it works in the criminally corrupt ANC. The lazier you are, the more incompetent you are, the more corrupt you are and the more you can steal…the better qualified you are for the job.
Hey…I mean…? Get fired as mayor for fraud and corruption and return as Minister of Communications in Zuma’s cabinet. Azania Mania at its best.
There is a lot of speculation about how Hlaudi Motsoeneng manages to stay in power and get money thrown at him. Some say his mother who abandoned him as a child is Zuma’s Sangoma (witchdoctor), but I think there is a simpler explanation. Maybe Minister Faith Muthambi and Hlaudi Motsoeneng should explain their romantic interest in each other to the people of South Africa.
Seriously it irks me tremendously to think that there are millions of honest people in South Africa; people, who go to work every day, grovel and grind and pay their taxes timeously and religiously and then scum like Hlaudi Motsoeneng, Faith Muthambi and Jacob Zuma just come along and steal their sweat.
Where is the justice in this country? How can the people of South Africa allow scum like this to hold office? Shouldn’t they be charging up the steps of the Union Buildings with pitchforks, pangas and necklaces?
