SA: Cosatu & Zuma

South African blog, The Fish Bowl writes that Cosatu is the latest in a long list of people and organisations distancing themselves from former VP Jacob Zuma…”It's humourous (and at the same time heartening) to see Cosatu's recent distancing from Zuma. Stating that “that they have never backed Zuma as their preferred succession candidate” is a tough proposition given the dishing out of thousands of “Zuma for President” t-shirts to supporters and the type of rhetoric given at mass rallies in support of Zuma”.
