BMF to meet Denel over white CEO, before considering legal action

The Black Management Forum will first meet with state-owned arms manufacturer Denel before considering legal action over its concerns that a white male, Daniel du Toit, was recently appointed group CEO.

"Through our lawyers, we requested that we be provided with all the pertinent information that was used and taken in consideration during the recruitment and selection process of the GCEO appointment of Denel," BMF’s managing director, Thabile Wonci, said in an emailed response to questions from Fin24.

"Denel has since responded, thus requesting a meeting with the leadership of the BMF at a date still to be decided by both organisations."
Monday was Du Toit’s first day on the job. The former managing director at SAAB Medav Technologies in Germany is replacing Zwelakhe Ntshepe, who resigned in May 2018 for personal reasons.

The BMF works to "develop and empower black managers within organisations", according to its website. In an interview with Fin24 in December, BMF President Andile Nomlala said the organisation would legally challenge companies who appoint white people to senior leadership positions while overlooking internal black capacity.

Again the BMF exposes its pure and unadulterated racism.
'Skin Pigmentation before Skills, Experience & Suitability' is their mantra.

What do BMF have to say about Denels current financial state?

I feel like creating a poll.
If the BMF had a choice between a corrupt black CEO and a highly qualified white CEO, which way would they go?

Everyone knows the answer to that.

No doubt Denel wants to implement a turn around strategy and efficient leadership, unlike other SOE's which continue to bleed and burn taxpayer money.

But I guess that's irrelevant in the light of the "Revolution" ...

What evidence is there that there was "overlooking [of] internal black capacity" ? SOEs are desperate to appoint blacks CEOs...
