'President Zuma is up to no good'

27 March 2017 1:09 PM

Zwelinzima Vavi slams President Zuma for ordering the Finance Minister to cancel an international investment promotion roadshow.

Former Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) secretary general, Zwelinzima Vavi, says South Africa needs a new strong trade union to resist government's corrupt dealings.

Vavi, who is now the convener of the new trade union federation, South African Federation of Trade Unions, says President Jacob Zuma is controlled by the Gupta family.

Zuma has ordered Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to come back home and cancel an international investment promotion roadshow starting on Tuesday in London.

South Africa needs an independent labour movement that can work with the civil society and not label them as counter revolutionaries or stooges of the work and all of that rubbish that Mahlobo usually talk about on our television.

Zwelinzima Vavi, former Cosatu secretary general

President Jacob Zuma is so loyal to the Gupta agenda. They tell him what to do.

Vavi describes the new federation is "political uncompromising, independent from political manipulation and worker-controlled movement that will give South Africans a voice".
