The President of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), Sidumo Dlamini, says the issue of members forcing the federation to abort its May Day march in Bloemfontein on Monday afternoon after President Jacob Zuma was prevented from delivering his keynote address, calls for urgent attention.

Dlamini says this is a clear indication that leaders in this country need to reflect on where they have gone wrong and discuss a way forward. He says the events that unfolded today are not individual issues, but an indication of underlying revolutionary challenges that need to be ironed out.

Dlamini says although the International Workers’ Day march organised by Cosatu was not a success, he will not blame it on the presidency.

This, after a group of Nehawu members chanting ZumaMustFall, asked Dlamini to step down in a similar fashion with the president.
