President Cyril Ramaphosa said government was doing battle with opponents of economic transformation in court and that they "must be defeated".
President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Friday evening that government and other supporters of economic transformation were in the throes of a "battle" against enemies of progress and that those who opposed this transformation had to be "defeated".
Ramaphosa was speaking at a gala dinner in Johannesburg. The dinner was organised by the Black Management Forum in celebration of the organisation's forty-fifth year in existence.
The event comes as government has had to defend its Covid-19 Tourism Equity Fund, which is aimed at assisting black-owned tourism businesses to access financing to promote transformation in the industry. Solidarity and AfriForum challenged the fund's rollout at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, saying it is discriminatory on the basis of race.
