Workers’ champ – what’s he up to?

2011-11-02 09:30

Can someone please shed some light on what has gone wrong with Cosatu secretary-general Zwelinzima Vavi.

I mean, for a man of his age to tarnish his credibility by agreeing to shenanigan schemes driven by Julius Malema is pathetic.

Or is he maybe trying to deceive the workers and pray that they don’t see what he is up to?

Ronald Lamola, Malema’s deputy, has accidentally revealed the motive behind this week’s so-called march for economic freedom.

No amount of spin will justify Cosatu’s continued endorsement of this political circus.

Unless Vavi comes forth and says it’s true, workers no longer want Jacob Zuma and Gwede Mantashe, then, even if we do not agree, we’ll respect him for being honest.
