cosatuBusinessLive reports that, in a further sign of the increasingly strained relations between the alliance partners, trade union federation Cosatu issued a statement on Thursday sharply critical of its allay the ANC.  

This follows the call earlier this week from the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu), Cosatu’s biggest affiliate, for President Jacob Zuma to step down.  Cosatu expressed its concern that the ANC was starting to treat workers with disdain and take the loyalty of the federation for granted.  It said it was tired of the ANC government’s many failures and broken promises, and the condescension and arrogance of some ANC leaders.  Cosatu also called on the government “to clean up the mess surrounding its nuclear plans.”
