The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) held a nationwide strike on Wednesday against state capture and corruption.
The march was supported by the African National Congress (ANC) as well as the South African Communist Party (SACP).
ANC Spokesperson in Johannesburg Jolidee Mathango spoke to The Midday Report stand-in host, Many Wiener.
He said that their support for the march in Gauteng is specifically is a result of a decision taken in 2016 by National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ANC, for a call for a judicial commission of inquiry into the state capture.
We ourselves in the ANC have said state capture is a problem that eats away at the country's resources.— Jolidee Mathango, ANC Spokesperson in Johannesburg
As the ANC we are fully behind the demands of Cosatu.— Jolidee Mathango, ANC Spokesperson in Johannesburg
