BMF wants Manyi to step down

2010-09-30 12:05

Former presidents of the Black Management Forum (BMF), existing leaders and members want current president Jimmy Manyi to step down.

“This organisation cannot be led successfully if the leadership is not overtly strong on values,” former BMF president Lot Ndlovu told reporters.

“We are appealing to the presidency to recognise its unfitness and do the respectable thing.”

Ndlovu said this was not a decision arrived at impulsively and without consideration.

It was rather due to an accumulation of positions the forum had taken in the past three to four years.

“We want to tell the public that we do not subscribe to or endorse the positions taken. We find it embarrassing,” Ndlovu said.

In an open letter to the BMF’s members and leaders, Ndlovu called for a board meeting to be convened by October 4, where a motion of no confidence in the presidency should be passed, unless Manyi voluntarily stepped down.
