Johannesburg - City of Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba on Monday weighed in on Cosatu's planned march against corruption, questioning why it did not include a detour to the Gupta home in Saxonwold.
Cosatu, and the South African Communist Party (SACP), recently resolved to embark on a national strike against state capture, corruption and job losses on 27 September and urged public servants to take part in the strike to protect their pension money.
The trade union federation secured a Nedlac Certificate allowing workers to participate in upcoming strike.
Mashaba in a statement questioned the motives of the strike.
"Unfortunately, Cosatu’s planned strike fails to take the protest to the headquarters of state capture, Saxonwald, at the Gupta residence. Under the new administration, we have made it clear that corruption has no place within the City.
