sidumodlaminiSunday Independent reports that trade union federation Cosatu - led by its president, S’dumo Dlamini - will engage the ANC following the governing party’s heated meeting that debated calls for President Jacob Zuma to step down.  

Dlamini said on Saturday the federation stood by its pronouncement that Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa should succeed Zuma as president of the party and country.  The Cosatu president also hit out at his opponents who have previously labelled him as a Zuma puppet, saying:  “I’m not Zuma’s puppet.  I respect him as my president therefore the allegations cease to exist…  Cosatu takes collective decisions.  Therefore anybody who attempts to subject us to factionalism will not succeed.”
