Zuma's apology: COSATU's response

Union federation welcomes president's apology unconditionally

President Zuma's apology

The Congress of South African Trade Unions has noted the unconditional apology (see here) by President Jacob Zuma, and welcomes the apology unconditionally. This is the President's own initiative, and it demonstrates his humility and integrity. The majority of South Africans will reciprocate this by giving him the benefit of the doubt.

It is good that the President realises that he erred and did not seek to take our people for granted. The apology was the right thing to do.

Statement issued by Patrick Craven, COSATU national spokesperson, February 6 2010
