popcruNews24 reports that Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) president Zizamele Cebekhulu said on Saturday that if the proposal for a reconfigured alliance was not accepted by the ANC, they were going to rebel.  

He was speaking at the union’s central executive committee conference.  Cebekhulu said workers would not give presidential hopeful Cyril Ramaphosa a blank cheque but rather, if he succeeded President Jacob Zuma, he should ensure that the ANC-led alliance was renewed.  Labour federation Cosatu and the SA Communist Party (SACP) have been calling for a renewed alliance that would give all parties equal decision-making powers.  Cebekhulu said that the police and correctional services have been left on the sidelines in the developments that have occurred in the country in the past three years.
