nehawu80TMG Digital reports that the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) has reiterated its call for Jacob Zuma to step down as state president.  

General secretary Bereng Soke said, however‚ Nehawu was not tabling a motion of no confidence‚ but rather asking Zuma to do the right thing.  This was despite labour federation Cosatu last month deciding not to make such a call publicly, but to rather engage the ANC on the matter.  Nehawu on Thursday said it would continue to lobby Cosatu to take the same stance as it had taken in regard to Zuma’s future as country president.  Nehawu is Cosatu’s biggest affiliate and was previously one of Zuma’s biggest supporters.
