Bonang Mohale, CEO of Business Leadership SA, says that the ANC has done more harm to black businesses and professionals than the National Party did in 46 years. Mohale is adamant that South Africa has spent the last 20 years regressing.
The ANC government has 'killed' more black businesses and careers than the National Party did during its 46-year-old during their nearly five decades in power, according to Bonang Mohale.
The Business Leadership SA CEO feels that white oppressors have simply been replaced by black successors:
"It is critical to have this conversation, to out the people that have used blackness for their own selfish gains. Poverty still has a black face."
According to News24, Mohale is urging people to self-reflect on past mistakes and provide a brighter future for our children.
The CEO feels that South Africa is 'leadership bankrupt' after spending the last 20 years regressing:
"The tragedy is that we are so leadership bankrupt that those found guilty by a court of law are still on the ANC election list. It is not good enough to say someone is guilty until proven innocent. Leaders must lead by example."
Mohale encourages dialogue among South Africans, saying that while the fight against Apartheid had been honorable, there are "good people among the white community", just as there were good and bad among the black people.
The CEO said that diversity would lead to a healthier economy and more sustainable business:
"When we are more inclusive, we debate and have dialogue, even if we do not agree. It shows we are prepared to listen to each other so that the outcome can be better than when we started initially."
