WC Cosatu voting against Zuma


Cosatu in the Western Cape has called on President Jacob Zuma to step down.

Provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich confirmed that the federation wants the president to step down, as well as see a return to and the restoration of the values and ethics contained in the Freedom Charter.

"Cosatu is calling for President Jacob Zuma to step down. We are going to be joining the marches on Monday in Cape Town to reaffirm that call. We are not supporting the Democratic Alliance's (DA) attempts to undermine the democratic process in South Africa, but we do want the African National Congress (ANC) to step up and remove Zuma, who has become an embarrassment and an impediment to our country and the hopes of our people," Ehrenreich said.

The vote of no confidence will be taking place in Parliament on Tuesday, August 8.
