Cosatu has again voiced its concerns over the protection of information bill.
Speaking at a media briefing earlier today, Cosatu general secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi said the union federation is prepared to take the bill to the Constitutional Court.
Vavi says the scope of the Bill is too broad and varied and Cosatu’s concerns remain largely unaddressed.
Meanwhile DA leader Helen Zille committed her party to fight the billon several fronts. She told a media briefing at Parliament black tuesday when the bill was approved by the National Assembly, would one day be seen as a turning point in South Africa's democracy.
