Durban - SABC head of corporate affairs Hlaudi Motsoeneng has been earmarked by the ANC Youth League to be the minister of land affairs so that he would - as he did at the public broadcaster - radically speed up transformation.
The league in KwaZulu-Natal said it would go all the way to lobby for the former SABC chief operating officer when the ANC holds its elective conference in December next year.
“We are going to lobby for Hlaudi to be elected into the NEC. We need a leader like you to be the minister of land affairs so that you can transform 90% of the land to black people,” said the league's secretary in KZN, Thanduxolo Sabelo.
Motsoeneng was the guest speaker at the provincial ANCYL’s “Economic Freedom in our Lifetime” lecture at the Durban City Hall, which was packed with the league’s supporters.
“We support you because you have a clear programme to uplift the black people of this country,” said Sabelo.
