The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) will go ahead with it's planned strike against State Capture on Wednesday.
The federation has been campaigning against State Capture and has echoed calls for President Jacob Zuma to step down.
However, the National Union of Metalworkers (Numsa) has denounced the strike as a factional move, and has urged its members not to participate in the planned demonstrations.
Cosatu General Secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali told political analyst, Karima Brown, that the federation is united.
The federation is of course a shadow of its former self. We know that one of the largest unions in the country, Numsa, was expelled and they came out slamming Cosatu saying that it's a desperate act on behalf of the federation.— Karima Brown, political analyst
We are going to have to watch and see come the 27th whether the divisions in Cosatu are going to play itself out in its organisational capacity to pull off the strike.— Karima Brown, political analyst
