Cape Town - The SA Municipal Workers Union’s suspended provincial secretary, Andre Adams, on Wednesday morning briefed local membership about funds “stolen” by national office bearers.
The meeting with staff at the municipality’s Southern Peninsula Depot was the first in a series organised by Adams and his supporters to “educate” members about “corruption” at Samwu’s national head office. Another meeting is scheduled to take place in Cape Town on Thursday.
Adams claims he and 14 other high-ranking provincial leaders across the country were suspended recently for raising questions about around R140 million in misappropriated and missing union funds.
The police Commercial Crimes Unit in Joburg confirmed it was investigating the missing millions.
A document circulated at the Samwu meeting in Ottery this morning purported to “summarise” the state of the union’s finances.
