cosatuANA reports that the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) said on Sunday that the African National Congress (ANC) needed to "give a face-lift to its government" and make sure it deployed people of high integrity who would at all times act with utmost professionalism.  

Responding to the ANC's January 8 statement delivered by ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa in East London on Saturday, Cosatu spokesperson Sizwe Pamla said the trade union federation supported the ANC national executive committee's (NEC) firm commitment to fight corruption.  Cosatu further agreed with the assertion that all forms of corruption had to be "exposed and prosecuted, including corruption, collusion, and other criminal activities in the private sector".  "Some members of the current executive are second rate and not helpful to the cause of a people-centred and people-driven development.  The ANC cannot continue to ignore the fact that since 2009 about 216 directors general have been suspended, removed, or shifted in 32 government departments.  This is unsustainable and wholly unacceptable," Pamla also said.
