Cosatu President Zingiswa Losi
Cosatu President Zingiswa Losi says being elected is a milestone not only for the women of SA but also for the women of Africa.

It is no longer a man’s world – that is the historic shift made by trade union federation Cosatu as is concluded its 13th national congress at Gallagher Estate on Thursday.

The election of its first female president Zingiswa Losi is being interpreted as a bold move to break with the recent past under Sdumo Dlamini when the federation saw a massive decline in numbers as affiliates joined rivals new kids on the block Saftu and Amcu.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Losi says it is a humbling experience and a huge responsibility.

It is also a milestone, that the federation has seen itself not only been led by a woman but the federation in the alliance, it is the only alliance component that has managed to have a 50/50 representation on the national leadership.

Zingiswa Losi, Cosatu President

It is quite a milestone, it is a humbling experience and also for the women of this country and for the women of the African continent.
