Zwelinzima Vavi believes there is an agenda at play as he faces suspension as the SA Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu’s) general secretary.

Speaking to Radio 786 Vavi refused to explain what the agenda is, saying he did not want to raise it in public as the organisation has a platform for this.

In a letter Saftu’s president Mac Chavalala accuses Vavi of serious misconduct and misbehaviour which he says warrants an investigation and possible disciplinary action. Chavalala alleges violations of the constitution, breach of administration and finance policy, as well as disrespecting and undermining constitutional structural decisions.

But Vavi has hit back saying the national office-bearers decision to suspend him is unlawful and unconstitutional. He says that only Saftu’s National Executive Committee can take such action. He further questioned why he should respond to the allegations that are deliberately vague, wild, and unsubstantiated.
