Johannesburg - Cosatu leaders have reportedly decided to call a special meeting to decide whether general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi should face a disciplinary hearing.

Eyewitness News reported on Tuesday that top Congress of South African Trade Unions leaders called a special Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting on the matter.

Although there is no official confirmation of the meeting, insiders told EWN that Vavi will have to face Cosatu leadership over the matter of his affair with a junior worker.

Vavi denied a claim of rape by the worker, and she later withdrew the complaint against him.

According to EWN, the meeting could be a stand-off between Vavi's supporters and those he believes are trying to oust him.
