Wits University hounded Malegapuru Makgoba for daring to introduce the topic of Africanisation. Mahmood Mamdani received similar treatment at the University of Cape Town.
Brian Molefe was demonised for forcing companies where PIC had invested to transform. Now the daggers are drawn out for Jimmy Manyi, a prominent proponent of transformation.

If people like Manyi are not defended, then all those moral crusaders will be cowed and the status quo (untransformed economy with poverty-stricken blacks) will remain.
