satawu thumb medium90 101The Citizen reports that the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) has official announced its support for Cyril Ramaphosa to become African National Congress (ANC) president at the party’s elective national conference in December.  

The resolution was made a 14-member task team elected at the union’s central executive committee (CEC) meeting on 17 November to run the affairs of the organisation until its elective national congress in February 2018.  The task team also resolved to support and lobby for its former general secretary, Randall Howard, to be elected as an additional member of the ANC NEC at the December conference.  The CEC elected the task team following general secretary Zenzo Mahlangu’s deportation to Zimbabwe in May and deputy general secretary Zacharia Mosothoane’s resignation during the CEC meeting.  A five-member executive was also appointed to spearhead the union’s work.  The abovementioned task team also “noted” the Labour Court ruling on 22 November that Mahlangu could no longer be general secretary of Satawu and resolved to comply with the court order.
