The Congress of South African Trade Unions mourns the death of Cde Charles Setsubi. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. Cde Charles was a veteran of our struggle and a tireless activist, who was a well of wisdom.
He was a dedicated communist and a veteran leader of our mass democratic movement. He never wavered in his fight for justice and social emancipation and like a disciplined and loyal soldier; he died fighting. We remain forever indebted in his leadership ,immense contribution to the political liberation of our people and the struggle for social emancipation.
We shall honour him by rebuilding the congress movement and strengthening our traditional Alliance led by the ANC through the process of reconfiguration around the minimum programme of the Freedom Charter.
May his revolutionary soul rest in peace!
