COSATU statement on the Zondo Commission report
Special Note: Happy 36th Anniversary to COSATU. Formed December 1985
The Congress of South African Trade Unions has noted the release of the first section of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry Report into State Capture and Corruption by Judge Zondo. The Federation thanks Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo and his team for their hard work and diligence in delivering this important report.
The Federation looks forward to the release of the remaining two sections of the Reports. The first part of the report paints a damning picture of the explosion of state capture and corruption over the past decade across the state.
We hope that the report will not be another waste of money like the Seriti Commission report that was looking into the arms deal. The Federation remains unhappy with the slow progress when it comes to prosecuting those who are implicated in corruption. There are no acceptable excuses anymore, we demand action now. A lot of money has been spent on investigating corruption allegations by the Zondo Commission and workers demand value for their tax rands.
