Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi will continue to serve in his position, the trade union federation has said.

“There is no question that can arise about any of the leaders here,” Congress of SA Trade Unions president Sidumo Dlamini told reporters in Johannesburg today.

“They have been elected at congress ... They are not deterred or embargoed to perform their duties, including the general secretary of the federation.”

Cosatu was briefing media after its central executive committee (CEC) meeting earlier this week. Vavi said the CEC took a special resolution that discussions would continue into alleged corruption regarding the sale of Cosatu’s headquarters, in which he was implicated.

He said the CEC had agreed it was important to complete the discussion of “some problematic ideological, organisational and administrative issues”.

Auditing firm Sizwe Ntsaluba Gobodo had been appointed to conduct a forensic audit on the sale of the headquarters.

In March, there were calls for Vavi to be investigated after allegations of corruption in the acquisition of Cosatu’s new headquarters.

Vavi denied the allegations and vowed to resign if they were proven true.
