Vavi slams Cosatu's Executive Committee
South African leader suspended for illicit love affairSuspended Cosatu General Secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi has ordered his lawyers to write to the Central Executive Committee of Cosatu, requesting a postponement or suspension of a disciplinary meeting meant to probe his sexual liaisons with a married colleague.
He was addressing a news conference in Johannesburg.
Vavi has slammed a decision by the labour federation to suspend him, saying those in favour of his suspension were strongly prejudiced.
An internal disciplinary, meant to probe his affair with the 26-year old woman and the way she was appointed, is meant to get
underway within days.
