Johannesburg – Businessman and chairperson of AngloGold Ashanti Sipho Pityana is disappointed in the Black Business Council (BBC) for publicly endorsing President Jacob Zuma, labelling this a “betrayal” that goes against the best interests of the country.

This follows reports in the Sunday Times that the BBC fully supports the president and wants him to complete his term in office. This is despite Pityana’s petition to have the president removed.

The president met with the BBC last Friday. The presidency subsequently released a statement on Monday, indicating that the president plans to address some of the issues raised by the organisation relating to economic transformation.
