Cape Town - Cosatu president Sdumo Dlamini on Tuesday re-affirmed the tripartite alliance with the African National Congress and the SA Communist Party.

"It is the Congress of SA Trade Unions' position and a congress resolution to support the ANC. The ANC is not a class enemy. How many times must we repeat that?" he said at the joint National Education, Health, and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) shop steward council in Cape Town.

"The SACP is not our class enemy... These are our allies."

He called on workers to defend Nehawu, its gains made in the liberation movement and ultimately, to work hard to defend the alliance.

He said Cosatu sometimes failed to identify individuals who were working against it because the organisation was full of "love and trust".

Cosatu would not change this loving character but would analyse situations more carefully in future.

Dlamini said the congress would continue to deal with its problems in the boardroom and warned members not to be confused by what was being conveyed in the media.
