cosatuANA reports that the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in the North West on Thursday blasted the African National Congress (ANC) for boycotting its elective conference in Mahikeng.  

“Delegates noted with huge disappointment and contempt the conspicuous absence of the African National Congress despite that the organisation was invited,” provincial secretary Job Dliso told reporters in Mahikeng.  He said delegates at the 5th elective conference tasked the provincial office bearers to initiate a bilateral meeting with the ANC in the North West to address their continued absence at Cosatu conferences and other pertinent issues affecting the operations of the tripartite alliance.  The relationship between the ANC and its alliance partners in the North West have been lukewarm of late.  In a statement the ANC in the North West congratulated Cosatu for convening a successful congress.  “We will convene a bilateral meeting with Cosatu, to discuss political matters of mutual interest on 16 August 2018,” acting provincial secretary Sussana Dantjie indicated.
