Cosatu president Sdumo Dlamini has confirmed that the labour federation’s general secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi, as well as the employee he had sex with at the office have been placed on “special leave” until a disciplinary hearing into their conduct has been finalised.
The hearing is set to start in the next four weeks and will be chaired by “independent persons” appointed by Cosatu’s national office bearers and the presidents of Cosatu’s affiliates.
Vavi is still allowed in the building, and was in the building as today’s press conference took place, his deputy, Bheki Ntshalintshali said.
Vavi tweeted: “In my office – packing my essentials – clearing my desk – will speak tomorrow or Saturday.”
Ntshalintshali will act in Vavi’s position for the time being.
