Meshoe has voiced support for Athol Trollip as mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality.[3] He has also spoken out on the issue of farm murders.[4]

Meshoe has voiced support for the State of Israel,[5] arguing against claims that Israel is an apartheid state, calling such accusations slanderous and deceptive. According to Meshoe, these claims trivialise the word apartheid, and belittles the magnitude of the racism and suffering endured by non-white South Africans during the apartheid era.[6][7][8]
