Cosatu will continue drive-slows to ‘irritate politicians’

2013-11-13 12:53

Cosatu’s drive-slow campaigns against e-tolling in Gauteng will continue as they irritate politicians, the union federation in province has said.

“This is not the end of the drive-slows in the province,” the Cosatu secretary Dumisani Dakile said in Joburg.

“It also irritates a number of politicians and we are quite happy with that irritation we are causing.”

Dakile said the drive-slows were effective in raising awareness.

Cosatu has a march planned for tomorrow to hand over memorandums to Gauteng’s premier, the transport department, the legislature, the Chamber of Mines of SA and the Hawks.

The cost of the construction of the roads and the 2010 World Cup stadiums was inflated, Dakile said.

“We know the prices were inflated. The Hawks and police must do a criminal investigation,” he said.
