The Black Management Forum (the BMF) congratulates the newly elected President Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa as the 5th president of the democratic South Africa. The BMF said it pledged its unwavering support to the newly elected president and his government. “We have full confidence and trust in the leadership of President Ramaphosa,” said BMF President, Mncane Mthunzi.
“We wish to remind him of the dire economic challenges that the country is faced with, such as the economic downgrades, high unemployment and dwindling foreign and domestic investment. The country has lost ground,” said Mthunzi.
The BMF said we need to roll up our sleeves and rebuild South Africa and it would be partnering with the President and his government in turning around the fortunes of fellow compatriots.
The lobby group also said transformation should now be a business imperative and be given priority in normalising our society. “South Africa has to meet the challenge of building a truly inclusive economy that will address the injustices of the past,” said Mthunzi.
The BMF urged all South Africans to give support to the new president. “We should all make an effort to be more patriotic and sympathetic to changing the lives of our fellow countrymen so that they can live in a country they deserve”.
