Johannesburg - Zwelinzima Vavi says he recognises that some people remain “unforgiving” about his affair with a Cosatu employee, which has reportedly resulted in him being placed on special leave.

Vavi tweeted on Thursday morning that he committed an error and apologised for it, but added that while many people accepted his apology, many people remained unforgiving.

"I am relieved so many have accepted that apology and recognise that some remain unforgiving. Know others celebrating and rubbing salt," he tweeted.

"I committed an error & have profusely apologised to everyone hurt by my indiscretion. That was a right thing to do."

He also thanked people for their support, and said he "will say more later".

According to reports, the Cosatu secretary general was put on special leave on Wednesday after a meeting was called to discuss his future within the organisation.

Cosatu will only release an official statement on the matter on Thursday.
