SaftuEWN reports that the SA Federation of Trade Union (Saftu) has expressed its condolences to the family of Zamile Booi, a member of the federation’s coordinating committee in the Free State.  

Booi died in a car accident on Monday in the North West.  Saftu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi described Booi as a principled and passionate supporter of the workers’ struggle and said his life would stand as an example to inspire others to follow the revolutionary path that he paved.  Booi left the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union to join the National Transport Movement (NTM).  He later left NTM after he was allegedly purged by one of the union’s leader in order to to join the Democratised Transport Logistics and Allied Workers’ Union.
