Vavi report is final - Cosatu

Johannesburg - The Congress of SA Trade Unions on Thursday said the forensic report on its suspended general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi is the final one on the matter.

“The central executive committee adopted that legal report and it's a final report,” acting secretary general Bheki Ntshalintshali told reporters in Johannesburg.

President Sidumo Dlamini said the report was presented to the trade union federation so it could study it with its lawyers.

The report relates to irregularities in the sale of the old Cosatu House.

Besides the selling and buying of Cosatu's old and new buildings, the auditors also probed a possible conflict of interest concerning Vavi and his stepdaughter.

She was employed by a service provider which was doing business with the trade union federation.

The service provider, VMS, provided technology for the fingerprinting system, among other services, at Cosatu's new premises in Braamfontein.

The auditors also found a conflict of interest with regard to the business partnership between VMS and Vavi's wife.

In terms of two companies, Kopano ke Matla (KKM) and Cubah properties, which Cosatu owned, there were apparent irregularities with regard to the KKM chief executive officer and the board of directors of Cubah properties.

Vavi opposed the report, saying he was not afforded the opportunity to comment on it. - Sapa
