Mzwanele Manyi 'retrenches' all Afro Voice staff, SACP vows to support workers
The South African Communist Party has expressed its shock at the developments at Afro Voice, formerly The New Age newspaper.
The national spokesperson for the party Alex Mashilo says they are more concerned about the job implications of the situation.
We were contacted by some of the workers from the paper and we've heard how the matter was handled by management.Alex Mashilo, SACP Head of Communications & National Spokesperson
Mashilo says they contacted the communications workers unions following these developments. He says the union has written a letter to Afro Voice management asking them to confirm the rumours so they can intervene as a trade union.
