Pretoria - Hlaudi Motsoeneng on Friday remained adamant that his political party, the African Content Movement (ACM), was robbed of crucial votes to win it a seat in Parliament, and remained defiant that he will "rule" South Africa one day.
"This movement is only four-months-old and the reality is that we could not reach all the corners of South Africa. If you look at the people who voted for us, that is the corner that I reached. But all people of South Africa in all provinces have voted for ACM," Motsoeneng said.
"They have rigged these votes. We have 5,000 party agents and they have already voted. If you have 5 000 party agents voted, you can't have that number. That number is misleading. People who voted in some of the voting stations said in those voting stations we got zero percent when our people have voted for us."
After 15.2 million votes, or 92.2 percent, had been counted by Friday afternoon, Motsoeneng's ACM had only managed to 3 967 votes nationally, hitting way off the mark the number required for a parliamentary seat.
Speaking during his walkabout at the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) results operations centre, Motsoeneng slammed the IEC saying that it wanted to pronounce the results of the election when it had acknowledged some shortcomings in conducting them.
