The Black Mangement Forum
The BMF as the vanguard of management excellence and custodian of effective leadership is privileged and honoured to confer its highly prozed and coveted leadership award upon Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela, the greatest son of the African soil, world statesman, and the first president of a non-racial, non-sexist and democratic South Africa. This award is in recognition of your outstanding, committed and exemplary leadership.
We hail your vision. We salute you for your steadfast purpose. We commend you for your giant footprints in the annals of our struggle for freedom and democracy. We pay reverence to your humility. We commend you for your unparalleled statesmanship under trying conditions; ability to align and harness divergent forces to serve our national cause; and diligence and dedication to the pursuit of peace, reconciliation, and nation building. The nation's gratitude defies limits.
