Durban - Cosatu members have been warned against gossiping and being vindictive towards one another.
The warning was given by the trade union federation’s president, Sdumo Dlamini, during a “women’s heritage seminar” at the Durban city hall at the weekend, where guests included Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, one of President Jacob Zuma’s wives.
Dlamini said as a federation they were supposed to lead as a united front, but there were elements within the federation that were vindictive.
He referred to rumours that Cosatu’s provincial secretary Zet Luzipo, had businesses apart from working for Cosatu.
Luzipo has denied this, saying that neither he, his partner nor siblings has ever owned a business.
Of the event itself, Dlamini said the province had continued to make its mark on women’s and children’s issues.
He said the seminar was an important one because it recognised the heritage of the women in SA.
“We are who we are because of women,” Dlamini said.
“What I can say as a way of paying tribute to women in this country is that men must stop abusing them.
“Women contribute to peace.” - Daily News
