Johannesburg, 8 May 2017

It is with great sadness to inform you of the passing on of the Black Management Forum (the BMF) Former President, Mr. George Negota. Mr. Negota passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning, 7 May 2017.

Mr. Negota was the BMF President from 1984 - 1986. Between 1981 and 1986, the BMF recognised its responsibility to deliver services to its membership and raised funds to achieve this objective. With the support of the Paris Chamber of Commerce, the Swiss Institute of Management Development and the South African Board of Directors, the BMF began offering management leadership programmes. During his presidency, the BMF broadened its reach establishing regional structures across the country. Previously it had been a Transvaal (now Gauteng) based organisation. When Mr. Negota stepped down as President of the BMF, he became the proprietor of a business development consultancy. Between 1990 and 1991, Negota was a director of the ANC’s Department of Manpower Development.

His passing on is a great loss to our organisation. As the BMF, we appreciate the mark he has made in the formation and leadership of our organisation. His contribution to the transformation landscape and in managerial leadership development will forever be remembered.

The BMF and the Negota family will host his memorial service on Wednesday, 10 May 2017 in Johannesburg. Mr. Negota will be buried in Venda (Makhado) on Saturday, 13 May 2017.

Further details will be shared as they are confirmed.
