We are finalising it by this week.. In the next two weeks we will be submitting section 77 [against] state capture.

Ntshalintshali says Cosatu's lawyers are working to apply for a section 77 protest notice which will be approved under the terms of the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac).

Last week, Cosatu and Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) met to discuss collaborative ways to tackle state capture.
