cosatuThe Star reports that it will take a while before Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) deputy general secretary Solly Phetoe makes a full recovery, according to the trade union federation.  

This follows the car accident in which he was involved in late November.  Cosatu parliamentary co-ordinator Matthew Parks said on Sunday that Phetoe, who has been out of the public eye for the past two months, was still recovering from his “quite bad accident”.  “He is making good progress.  He won’t be making public appearances at this stage as he recuperates at home,” he indicated.  Apparently Phetoe and his driver were travelling at night along a road near Brits in the North West when the accident occurred.  Both Phetoe and the driver were injured.  His driver was hospitalised.  Parks said that despite the incident, the rest of Cosatu’s top leadership were hard at work at the federation’s national office.  Meanwhile, the federation thanked all its members for their continuous support for Phetoe throughout his ordeal.  Phetoe was Cosatu’s North West provincial secretary until he joined the national ranks in November 2015, after being elected at Cosatu’s 12th National Congress in Midrand.
