Johannesburg, South Africa – 20 December 2017
The Black Management Forum (the BMF) would like to congratulate the election of Cyril Ramaphosa as the President of the African National Congress (ANC) and the rest of the leadership collective elected on Monday evening. The BMF wishes the newly elected ANC leadership all the best in their term of office.
South Africa has been at a crossroad as far as leadership is concerned. We need to raise the bar and create high standards of leadership. As South Africans we need and deserve a leadership that loves its people; a leadership that wants to make a positive and sustainable difference in the lives of its people. We need a corrupt-free leadership that puts its people first. The ANC as the governing party continues to play a significant role in society and therefore what goes on in the ANC directly impacts society at large. The country is in dire need of ethical and servant leadership. We urge this newly elected leadership of the ANC to provide the leadership we need. They must cease the moment and unite our country; business, labour and civil society in building the national consensus to drive socio-economic transformation with a view to achieve inclusive economic growth. As the BMF, we are offering our support to the leadership to ensure socio-economic transformation is achieved in our country.
