zumaThe Citizen writes that Cosatu has reportedly barred President Jacob Zuma from addressing its central committee meetings and all other federation events.  

The decision was made by the labour federation’s central executive committee at its special sitting on Monday, which elected to rather have Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa speak at its events.  According to a report in Business Day, the meeting resolved to write to the ANC to inform the governing party in writing of its decision.  This followed Zuma’s embarrassment at Cosatu’s Workers’ Day Rally in Bloemfontein earlier this month when he was booed and heckled by workers.  In April, Cosatu called for Zuma to step down as president, saying it did not believe he was the right person to lead the country.
