ancEWN reports that that Cosatu will apparently not be attending a planned bilateral meeting with the African National Congress (ANC) on Monday.  

The labour federation told the party that it wanted the previously cancelled Alliance Political Council meeting, which was scheduled for last week and cancelled by the ANC, to be held first.  The ANC confirmed that its top six leaders met Sunday to prepare for the bilateral meeting with Cosatu.  It was expected that the ANC would want clarification on Cosatu's decision to ban President Jacob Zuma from speaking at the federation's events.  Cosatu and the SA Communist Party have called on the president to step down, while the federation has taken a decision to bar him from its activities.
