Solidarity posted a video on YouTube of government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi, who was then the director general of labour, saying there was an “over-supply” of coloured people in the Western Cape.
He made the comment in March 2010.
Manyi later said he had been speaking in his capacity as Black Management Forum president.
This is still vilely offensive. Uttered by a vile piece of humanity. Rumour has it that said personage is not going to be employed by the government soon. I'll cut the South African business community a deal - I'll promise not to hire him and you promise not to hire him. If we all don't hire him then perhaps he'll disappear in a heap of impoverishment and get the fuck out of our lives.
