Pro-Motlanthe youth disrupt Cosatu rally

By Sapa | Nov 19, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 12 ]

A Congress of SA Trade Unions rally in Limpopo was disturbed on Saturday by a group of youth supporting deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe 

“It was... a group of few young people wearing Motlanthe T-shirts signalling change with their hands, [they were] singing and chanting,”Cosatu’s provincial chairman Essob Mokgonyana said.

Mokgonyana said the rally went ahead without any clashes with the group.

The rally, which was held in Nthane Primary School in Sekhukhune, Limpopo, focused on the wild cat strikes in the mining sector in the province and also to help stabilise the National Union of Mineworkers.

He also said even though the rally was not about the African National Congress’s elective conference in Mangaung, another group made gestures in support of President Jacob Zuma to be elected for the second term.

Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma - ex wife of President Jacob Zuma - Sdumo Dlamini; someone who wants Kgalema Motlante to withdraw to be elected as the President. Even a fool can see that Sdumo Dlamini is misusing his powers of COSATU to vote for his Sbari - Jacob Zuma for the second term as a president. What is so disturbing about this; is that ANC Policy stipulates that branches from 9 provinces will vote, and the candidates who got most votes will be nominated to be 'top braz' of the ANC. So this now means; voting Comrade Kgalema is being disturbed as Sdumo is canvasing against ANC Constitution. So will the outcome of Mangaung; show fair and transparent process. Anyone who canvasing for any position should be dismissed - so is Jacob Zuma!

You cannot be serious! Weskoppies and Sterkfontein are still in operation. Please, if you are really in your right, please stop destroying the ANC and the country. Zuma has to explain this week, which bank gave him a bond. We are used to young kids lying, but an old man, nogal president of the ANC and the country! This is unbelievable! Really time for change if we do not want to see the ANC die and the country destroyed.
