Call for Zuma to step down not personal, says Cosatu KZN

Cosatu KZN says the recent appointment of Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba doesn't mean radical economic transformation will happen.

DURBAN - Cosatu in KwaZulu-Natal says its calls for President Jacob Zuma to step down are not personal but rather a matter of principle.

The provincial federation held a briefing in the Durban CBD on Wednesday following its CEC meeting last week.

Cosatu's KwaZulu-Natal regional secretary Edwin Mkhize says the recent appointment of Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba does not mean radical economic transformation will now happen.

He says the African National Congress (ANC) must change its economic policies and not just the face of the ministry.

Mkhize says calls for President Zuma to resign are not personal.

“This issue is not about any individuals. This issue and the position of Cosatu is a principle matter.”

When asked why Cosatu wouldn’t be participating in this Friday’s mass action despite its national office calling for Zuma to resign, it says it still wants to continue engaging with the ANC first.
