Grain SA has addressed the wrongs of the past – Steytler

Grain SA had made massive strides in addressing the imbalances of the past, with both black and white members working extremely hard to break down the racial divide, said retired Grain SA chairperson Louw Steytler at the recent 2016 Grain SA congress in Bothaville.

“The endeavour of this organisation is to represent every single grain producer in South Africa. We have put all our members on the same par and will never refer to any of our members on the basis of grouping or race,” said Steytler.

He said Grain SA success in this regard was the result of statesmanship from both black and white leaders.

Members need not hesitate to voice their opinions but should work hard to preserve the principles previous leaders worked hard for.

“We have not allowed racial issues to get clouded by emotions and I implore you not to allow it in future,” Steytler said.
