Why did the DA march to the Cosatu HQ?

16 May 2012, 08:01

 To question ANC’s power. 

Over the years there have been debates about who exactly holds power with the tripartite alliance. What happened yesterday put the debate on the panel again.

This year we have seen COSATU in action within the ANC with everything that it opposed being delayed or pushed aside. First, it was the POIB: which COSATU and other organisation fought and they half-won the battle. The POIB is back to parliament . With this, it was re-affirmed that VAVI has a voice and they listen to it within the alliance. Secondly, it was the TOLLS in Gauteng; again COSATU fought with other organisation and they “half-won” the battle again; the tolls are on hold. On both occasions we saw COSATU and DA holding hands in opposition to the POIB and E-tolling. Helen and Vavi became friends.

However, things started to get sour when COSATU rejected the government’s strategy of creating jobs for the youth with “wage subsidies”. Then Vavi accused Helen of trying to recruit her for her party but Helen rejected those claims. Thus today we saw all that madness.

Helen with his “economic freedom marchers” today chose to go and march to COSATU headquarters, not the ANC’s in Pretoria. With this, they showed that COSATU is the main-character within the tripartite alliance.

Is there an afterlife?

It is indeed a very intriguing question because every single one of us will die. While none of us has any choose in being born and in dying we would like to know: what, if anything, awaits us and our loved ones afterwards.  Read more...
