HIS VIEWS ON PRESIDENT CYRIL RAMAPHOSA

“He seems like some who is being controlled by remotes from all the corners and he is in-between.”
“Remember, he said he is coming with a new dawn, what see is new doom.”
He believes South Africans are suffering and they will continue to suffer as long as Ramaphosa is in charge.
“I have not seen the new dawn, it’s new Doom.”
‘I WAS HOMELESS’
Motsoeneng also touched on his upbringing where he revealed that he was homeless at one point and that he was raised by his grandmother.
“I chose to leave home because I was staying with my cousins who were smoking nyaope.”
When asked about his education Motsoeneng said he doesn’t need matriculation or a degree because he believes in himself.
“I am a degree myself.”
He also advised the youth to go after what they want, to dream when they’re awake, and to not just focus on getting degrees and end up being unemployed afterward.
