THE South African Communist Party (SACP) Thembisile Hani District has warned employers who were accused of exploiting workers in Kokstad that their days are numbered.

The party held a meeting with district executive committee members and a press briefing at Kokstad Public Primary School on Sunday.

Deputy district secretary Vuyiswa Qakaza said workers that work at shops have reported cases of exploitation by employers and will be working with the Department of Labour for investigations. She said the party has intervened in some shops in Kokstad.

“To fight ill-treatment of employees successfully, we need workers to join the party and shop stewards will be given proper training,” said Qakaza adding that the party will keep fighting for workers’ rights.

Qakaza was joined by her secretary Ntlantla Zungu, treasurer Zoliswa Nyide, Xolani Stemela and other members when addressing members of the press about resolutions of the meeting.

Zungu congratulated the newly-elected African National Congress (ANC) KwaZulu-Natal provincial structure. He said the communist party will be working strongly with members of the ANC in the Harry Gwala District during regional congress which will be held soon.

He said the party has completed preparations for the upcoming SACP provincial congress.

“At the provincial congress we will be engaging about building strong branches, unity and focus to the interests of our communities,” he said.

He added that debates around land need to be completed in a scientific manner that will not affect the economy. He said members of the party will regularly visit Elonwabeni Old-Age Home to give assistance to care workers.

“We will be sending correspondence to MEC of Social Development to intervene in solving problems that face the old-age home,” he said.

Nyide called on government structures and companies to provide opportunities for all women.
