limusaEWN reports that prominent trade unionist and African National Congress (ANC) member Cedric Gina has passed away.  Gina died in a Durban hospital on Monday morning.  

He rose through the ranks to become president of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa).  In 2013, he resigned from Numsa as he was unhappy about the direction the union was taking following its expulsion from labour federation Cosatu.  Gina was then instrumental in forming a new metal workers union, the Liberated Metalworkers Union of South Africa (Limusa), which is a Cosatu affiliate.
