[LISTEN] Cosatu 'happy' with talks over Cabinet

While President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to address the nation on the composition of his Cabiinet at 8pm on Wednesday, tripartite alliance members have been in ongoing talks over the matter.

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has met with the president.

It says it is happy with the discussions and agrees with the president's move to reduce ministerial departments.

Cosatu spokesperson Sizwe Pamla spoke to Ray White on the Afternoon Drive to express the organisation's support for the process.

These talks have been ongoing for the last couple of days, today was the third day when we were being told about the seniors who have been appointed. We agree with the president on a number of principles and also agree that tainted individuals have no business being entrusted with positions of responsibility.

He has to look for people he trusts will help him deliver.
