Vavi 'not suffering' outside Cosatu
The former General-Secretary says he won’t be using Cosatu’s congress next week to appeal his dismissal.
JOHANNESBURG - Former Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) General-Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi says he's finding life outside Cosatu and the Tripartite Alliance very warm, and not cold as the African National Congress (ANC)would like to believe it to be.
He said yesterday that he would not be using Cosatu's congress next week to appeal the decision to remove him from his post.
Vavi says it's clear to him that the members at next week's conference will either be too scared of the current leadership, or too beholden to them, to vote him back into office.
He says he's not suffering outside the federation.
"It is very warm outside, unlike before when it was very cold outside. The opposite is now happening."
