Johannesburg - Labour minister Membathisi Mdladlana has instructed his director general Jimmy Manyi to choose between his job in government and his position as president of the Black Management Forum (BMF), The Sunday Independent reported on Sunday.

Mdladlana who was attending a child labour conference in The Hague in Netherlands said Manyi's holding of two positions was "not sustainable".

He said they had already discussed the matter.
  
After he was appointed director-general for the department of labour, Manyi apparently promised Mdladlana that the BMF deputypresident Thembakazi Mnyaka would "carry the can" for the organisation.

Manyi later stood for the organisation's presidency and was re-elected in October, two months after he was appointed director-general.

"Now that they know he is the director-general of the department of labour for the next three years (they should appoint another president).

"Are they (the BMF) saying there is no one who can be the president of the BMF? He should have moulded a leader as he was leading," Mdladlana said.

Manyi recently said the Constitution had to be changed as it did not favour transformation. He also attacked the freedom of expression clause, blaming it for the media's criticism on President Jacob Zuma.
