No decision on who to back for President - Cosatu
The central executive committee of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), says it has not made a decision on who to back for the ANC’s next leadership election.
EWN reporter Dineo Bendile says the federation wants to allow it's affiliates to consult workers and come up with a decision that wont be reckless and that wont divide the alliance.
The focus of the meeting was not specifically about President Zuma but on issues around his succession, she says.
Reports in the past weeks have been suggesting that Cosatu will be backing Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa as the next President.
However, Bendile says the federation made it clear it doesn't want to make such a pronouncement and has condemned other political organisations who are already showing signs of who they will be backing.
Cosatu says it needs to take a cautious approach so that its decision is unified.Dineo Bendile, EWN reporter
