A forensic audit found irregularities in the sale of the old Cosatu House, the trade union federation said on Tuesday.

"The CEC [central executive committee] reviewed a final report by auditors SizweNtsalubaGobodo on conclusions of their investigation into allegations," Cosatu acting general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali told reporters in Johannesburg.

Besides the selling and buying of the Congress of SA Trade Unions' old and new buildings, the auditors also probed a possible conflict of interest concerning suspended general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi and his stepdaughter.

She was employed by a service provider that was doing business with the trade union federation.

"The NOBs [national office bearers] will be seeking legal advice on the suitable action to be taken in this regard," he said.

The report was given to the CEC at a special meeting on Monday. - Sapa
