Johannesburg – The EFF lambasted white South Africans after a report by the Commission for Employment Equity found racial transformation in private sector top management was “regressing”.

The report said black people occupy most public sector top management jobs at 73.2%. However, it revealed white people held most of the top management jobs in the private sector at 72.4%.

EFF spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, said 22 years into democracy the report showed the white population was “not interested in sharing wealth and leadership of business with black people”.

“The commission's report demonstrates that our economy is led by white racists who only see blacks as consumers whose only contribution is as cheap and daily disposable labour.

"It is a fact that they trade and do business in a country whose majority is black people, yet they despise the very people who make them rich,” he said.

Ndlozi also accused government of overlooking race and racism.

“A perfect example is in the fact that most senior counsel that represent the government in legal battles are white males.”

Ndlozi said the EFF believed the only solution to a “racist economy which excludes and marginalised black people” was economic freedom.

“Blacks need to [beg] whites for a place in the economy of a country of their birth. It is a shame that to this day, 22 years after democracy, we have not created new industries in which black people's skills, talents and gifts are appreciated.”
