Exits from Cosatu, TB Joshua hasn't been served, Meyiwa murder - Today's Big 3

Cosatu buckling under Numsa expulsion pressure:

Seven Cosatu-affiliate unions have left the federation, following the expulsion of Numsa over the weekend. Speculation had been rife this was likely to happen, with Numsa's expulsion costing Cosatu around 338 000 members. This move is said to leave the tripartite alliance weakened - a concern for the ANC.

Nigerian prophet TB Joshua still hasn't been served:

The leader and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria hasn't been served with a summons yet, following a horrific collapse of a guest house on his church grounds. TB Joshua's SCOAN was the site of a collapse that claimed the lives of 115 people - 85 of whom were South Africans. Speaking on 702's John Robbie Show, SCOAN Spokesperson Bally Chuene says Joshua hasn't been served with a court summons by Nigerian authorities and has therefore not appeared at hearings to resolve the process of repatriation of the South African corpses.
