COSATU Media Release, 27 February 2008

Willie Madisha

The Central Executive Committee (CEC) of the

Congress of South African Trade Unions has

received the report of the Commission of Enquiry

into allegations involving the COSATU President,

Willy Madisha. The CEC decided to release the copy

of the report publicly in the light of the

misrepresentation by some in the media and

unauthorised sources in the Federation which all

combined to misinform the public about the real

facts behind the establishment of the commission

and its terms of reference. [We attach the full

report of the commission.]

The CEC has accepted the Commission’s findings

and recommendations. The CEC unanimously

resolved to remove Willy Madisha as President of

COSATU in terms of Clause 9.6.1.3 of the COSATU

constitution. An Acting President will be elected at

next CEC in May 2008.

COSATU will hold a press conference on this

matter today at 15:00 at the COSATU Head office

in Braamfontein.

REMINDER: The media are also invited to a press

conference to receive a report of the CEC meeting

on the political, socio economic and other issues

dealt by the CEC. The details are:
