Vavi criticise Aurora mining company
29 April 2011
Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi has hit out at the Aurora mining company, saying it encapsulates capitalism at its worst and greed at its best.
Vavi was speaking at the memorial service for former Cosatu deputy president George Nkadimeng in Pretoria. Nkadimeng died in a car accident in Mpumalanga last week.
Vavi criticised the life of luxury that the Aurora directors, President Jacob Zuma’s nephew Khulubuse Zuma, and former president Nelson Mandela’s grandson Zondwa Mandela - live, while workers suffer with two years of outstanding wages, surviving on hand-outs and without electricity.
