Hart, who has been given the South African name Mpho, reflected on his time in the country.
“In 2023, there’s already been a tremendous amount of change in myself, in my career, my infrastructure, also in your infrastructure, there’s been a tremendous amount of change,” Hart said.
“So, now I think it’s about the alignment and I can’t wait to come back and truly show the proof of the concept and have some of your own highlighted in the things that I’m doing,” he continued.
Hart said that he was also here to do away with some of the misconceptions held by Americans about South Africa.
