Chaza Strategic Management (CSM), a high-level business consultancy and entrepreneur incubator headed by Enver Buys, is spearheading a nomination campaign for Mr. Ronald Dyers, the current Chairperson of the South African Movement for Equality (SAME) to see Mr Dyers become a member of the SABC Board. The decision to nominate Mr. Ronald Dyers comes after numerous meetings with community stakeholders who conceded that the best way to effect change within the public broadcaster, is from within, by having a suitably qualified and capable person of Mr Dyers' calibre on the SABC Board. Mr Ronald Dyers has unreservedly accepted his nomination to serve as Board of Director at the SABC and this decision is unequivocally and enthusiastically supported by and myself (Charles Ash).

Having met Ronald Dyers a few years back and worked extensively with him on numerous projects, I can personally vouch for the sincere and unwavering commitment which Mr Dyers has for his community. A consumate professional, an excellent negotiator (after many years as a negotiator for worker unions), an organised facilitator and a man of decisive action, Mr Dyers is somebody who will represent the community's interests in a balanced, fair and responsible manner. Fluent in 4 South African languages, the effervescent Ronald Dyers is in my view, the ideal representative to the SABC Board to ensure the Board delivers on its mandate.

A resident of Riverlea, Johannesburg, Mr Ronald Dyers has been leading the charge as chairman of SAME in often spirited talks with SABC management for the last 12 months. The focus of the talks has been on the absence of content for the Khoi-San, Griqua and Coloured communities. Mr Ronald Dyers has been and continues to be actively involved in the development of radio and television development in minority communities all over the country.

In order to effect nomination of Ronald Dyers to the SABC Board, we hereby implore you, the members and concerned members of the community to send nomination letters to the offices of Chaza Strategic Management and state your support of the nomination of Ronald Dyers to the SABC Board as Chaza Strategic Management will be doing a collective nomination for Mr Ronald Dyers. We cannot sit idly by while our communities are denied access to state media facilities.
