The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in Limpopo has resolved to embark on a campaign to demand consequence management and political accountability following serious allegations of corruption in the provincial government.

The federation accused Limpopo Premier Stan Mathabatha and the ANC provincial executive committee of being "AWOL" and quiet "at a time when society needs political leadership in the midst of rampant corruption…"

In a statement released after its provincial executive committee meeting, provincial secretary Gerald Twala felt Mathabatha and the ANC in Limpopo were not working in the spirit of a letter sent to party members, instructing all those facing serious crimes and allegations to step aside.
