The Congress of South African
Trade Union in a statement says it is deeply troubled by reports that imply
that the incidents in Tshwane are sponsored by some leaders of the movement in
collusion with tenderpreneurs.
COSATU national spokesperson Sizwe Pamla says
the federation calls for a thotough investigation of these allegations and for
the immediate arrest of the plotters and perpetrators if they are discovered.
“There are allegations in what we
see happening in Tshwane,The political violence and vandalism that is taking
place there is sponsored.
We don’t take these reports lightly because we think
that any form of anarchy that is going to be sponsored either by business people
or by political individuals needs to be thouroghly eradicated from within the
movement itself but also in our political environment.
So as COSATU are calling
for an investigation of this allegations and we want to discover the perpetrators
to be dealt with because we cannot have a political system in the country where
people can sponsor this kind of anarchy and vandalism”
