sidumodlaminiThe Citizen reports that Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), slated Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) president Sdumo Dlamini on Tuesday as a clown.  

“I’m sorry Sdumo Dlamini is clownish, I still can’t comprehend how he outmaneuvered seasoned unionist like @Zwelinzima1 and @IrvinJimSA,” wrote Malema in an expression of disbelief at how the likes of Dlamini could have apparently outplayed former Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi and Numsa leader Irvin Jim.  Vavi responded to Malema by writing:  “We were outmaneuvered by the state led by ANC & SACP dominant factions not Sidumo!  That’s what we were dealing with.  It is the ANC and SACP that destroyed the unity of workers.”
