The Cosatu congress is currently underway in Midrand. This is the first regular gathering of the federation since the expulsion of metal workers union Numsa and dismissal of former general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi.
Stephen Grootes explored the proceedings and expected outcomes of the congress with EWN reporter Govan Whittles.
Listen to the conversation below:
Grootes also spoke to Cosatu president Sdumo Dlamini about the state of the federation.
I speak on behalf of the federation, like any office bearer is expected. Mistakes would have happened where Cosatu allowed an individual to rise above the organisation and be the organisation himself.— Sdumo Dlamini, Cosatu president
In a recent update, EWN reporter Govan Whittles, talks about disagreements about credentials at the Cosatu Congress.
