COSATU members were deeply saddened to hear about the loss of one of their veteran members and founder member of the trade union movement of South Africa Liz Abrahams, who passed away yesterday.
Spokesperson for COSATU Patrick Craven said that Abrahams devoted her entire life to building the trade union movement and the liberation struggle.
“She continued throughout her life getting involved not only in the Trade Union Movement but the Women’s Movement, the African National Congress, South African Communist Party and was a role model I think for any activist, particularly trade union activist who is coming into the movement today,” said Craven
Craven also said that Abrahams always put her own interests last and was a true servant of the people.
