Craven admitted to hospital
Johannesburg - Cosatu spokesperson Patrick Craven has been admitted to hospital due to "fatigue and ill-health", a spokesperson for an affiliate union said on Thursday.
"He is not well and has not taken a break in four years," National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) spokesperson Castro Ngobese said.
Craven was admitted to hospital on Monday while on leave from work.
Numsa wished him a speedy recovery.
"We are certain that he is in the caring hands of our great men and women health workers, and he will soon be back to his full-time responsibilities at Cosatu House.
"Comrade Craven remains one of the most revered spokespersons ever produced by the revolutionary and socialist-orientated trade union movement," Ngobese said.
