cosatuNews24 reports that the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) said on Tuesday that it hoped freezing the assets of Gupta-linked companies McKinsey and Trillian, combined with the Commission of Inquiry into state capture, would signify the "beginning of the end of the Gupta patronage network that has wreaked havoc on our economy".  

The federation said in a statement:  “The endemic corruption that is eating at the fabric of our society and that robs us of services needs to be cleaned up without fear or favour.  We are encouraged by the ANC national executive committee's firm commitment to the fight against corruption and agree with the assertion that law enforcement agencies need to be strengthened in order to lead the fight against corruption and crime in general."
