ANC YL calls for immediate appoitment of Siyabonga Gwala as Transnet GCEO
11 August 2009
The African National Congress Youth League calls for immediate appointment of Siyabonga Gama as Group Chief Executive Officer of Transnet Ltd. There is evidently a concerted agenda by the predominantly White Board of Directors and external role players to isolate Siyabonga Gama from Transnet and deny him the position of GCEO of Transnet, despite his credentials.
Recurrently, Africans are denied positions of responsibility in key and strategic sectors of the economy and we should never egg walk around this absolute reality. The Employment Equity Commission Report recently released confirm the reality that those in control of the economy (White Males) refuse the integration of capable black people into key and strategic sectors of the economy.
Siyabonga Gama should be appointed a GCEO and business goes on as usual in Transnet. Any attempt to persecute and isolate him will be met with massive resistance from the youth of South Africa. The suspension on Gama is a witch-hunt meant to block him from the GCEO position and should be immediately withdrawn.
