In 2003 it was revealed by John Perlman that the SABC had blacklisted a lot of political commentators and that Moeletsi was one of them, possible due to his political views. Moeletsi generated some controversy when he said that Africa was governed better under colonial rule than today. (See October 2007 in rail transport). In October 2006 Moeletsi Mbeki applied for an order to have Jonathan Moyo jailed the next time he visits South Africa. He has been known to oppose certain Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) deals in South Africa and has written articles for the Cato Institute, a USA-based libertarian think tank.

With his book “Architects of Poverty: Why African Capitalism Needs Changing” in 2009 he has triggered a debate about governance, ethics and moral values in African governance processes.
