The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) promises to tackle the state capture saga and other state maladministration vigorously.
The African National Congress (ANC)’s main alliance vows to fight the corruption that lies with the main party and continues to back deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa to be the next president.
Bheki Ntshalintshali, the alliance’s general secretary says: “We will launch a series of strikes against corruption, for the nuclear project to be put on hold and against state capture which has compromised our revolution against the closure of coal mines. We will fight against no notions of radical economic transformation. We will work on the ground with ANC structures to ensure comrade Cyril is elected as the next ANC president.”
Cosatu completed its four-day central committee meeting in Tshwane on Thursday.
The federation made it clear that it wants to partake in all impeccable decisions that ANC will make and also didn’t want to rephrase its statement that it made about banning President Jacob Zuma from its activities.
