The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) will convene a special central committee meeting to deal with the events that led to it cancelling all the speeches at its main May Day rally in Bloemfontein.
Cosatu secretary general, Bheki Ntshalintshali, says the federation has not taken the decision on whether President Jacob Zuma should or should not be invited when they meet for the central committee meeting.
Ntshalintshali says the special central committee will also decide on whether the President should be invited to speak at Cosatu events as they have taken a resolution that he should step down.
Zuma was unable to deliver his speech at Cosatu's May Day rally after being heckled and booed by some members.
We have invited the ANC, we don't know who the ANC will send.— Bheki Ntshalintshali, Cosatu secretary general
In relation to who is going to speak, we have not issued an invitation to that extent. We will decide once we are being guided by our special central executive committee.— Bheki Ntshalintshali, Cosatu secretary general
