(GIN) – The recent announcement of resignation by a prominent black chief executive at South Africa's national power company, Eskom, has stirred outrage among a group of black professionals over a racially-divided climate at state jobs.

Eskom's top officer, Jacob Maroga, reportedly handed in his resignation last week and it was widely believed he was forced out by the white chair of the board, Bobby Godsell. This prompted the the Black Management Forum to lash out, saying state-owned enterprises were becoming "slaughterhouses" for black professionals recruited to head these enterprises.
"The majority population of this country are saying, enough is enough," the management group wrote on their website." We have stopped watching from the sidelines when our economy is being manipulated to exclude the majority of its citizens.
"We will no longer watch when our people and our hopes for the management and control of our economy, the majority of the black middle class and specifically our executives are being made footballs, bastardised and manipulated by cynical forces."
Maroga has since been talked back into the job and Godsell stepped down this week after a private meeting with President Zuma, in a surprise move.
