Motlanthe: Tripartite alliance is dead
Kgalema Motlanthe says trade unionists have been actively working to divide the movement.
JOHANNESBURG - Former ANC deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe says the tripartite alliance is dead and the SACP, Cosatu and ANC no longer take decisions independently.
In an interview with Business Day, Motlanthe said trade unionists had been actively working to divide the movement.
Motlanthe has also opened up about his decision not to stand for election to senior ANC structures at the party's Manguang conference in 2012.
He said he knew he would battle to get the leadership to comply with the ANC constitution.
Motlanthe said the ANC, SACP and Cosatu now operate as one organisation.
"My reading is that there's no alliance. There's one organisation existing inside the integuments of erstwhile independent organisations."
