Johannesburg, 9 May 2017 

On Monday, 8 May 2016, the Black Management Forum (the BMF) woke up to the tragic news of the passing on of its former President, Mr George Negota. Mr Negota passed away on Sunday, 7 May 2017 in Johannesburg.

Mr Negota served the BMF with pride in its endeavours to influence the country’s socio-economic transformation in the interest of justice, fairness and equity and developing managerial leadership. To celebrate his life and contribution to the transformation agenda, the Negota family and the BMF request the honour of your presence at the memorial tribute service:

Date: Wednesday, 10 May 2017

Time: 13h00

Venue: Rhema Bible Church North, Hans Schoeman Street, Randburg

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.
