COSATU snubs Madiba’s birthday bash

COSATU Western Cape Provincial Secretary, Tony Ehrenreich, has rejected a “By invitation only” invite to an exclusive party hosted by the SABC and Correctional Services, in honour of Nelson Mandela’s birthday.

The party will be held in the Drakenstein Correctional Facility in Paarl. Ehrenreich said the party is an excuse for the elite to get together and pat each other on the back on a job well done.

“Cosatu is really pleased that parties are being held all over the country to honour Nelson Madela which is clearly one of the greater sons of the soil of Africa. We are concerned however when institution like SABC have functions that are more elite and seems to go against the principal of commemorating Mandela and to include everyone.”

Ehrenreich said they won’t be able to align themselves with the elitist party that happening in Paarl and they hope that they will have a function for everybody in Cape Town.
