​ANC MP calls idea to restrict tenders to blacks 'bird-brained'

 

The call to exclude coloured and Indian South Africans from BEE tenders worth more than R50-million is "ill-timed, poorly conceived and flies in the face of the constitutional provision for redress", says ANC MP Mandla Mandela.

 

The grandson of late former president Nelson Mandela said the proposed changes to the BEE policy also contradicted "the ANC's Mangaung resolution for radical economic transformation for all who were historically disadvantaged".
