04 March 2024

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) in Gauteng congratulates the South African Communist Party(SACP) for its successful13th Provincial Congress held from the 1st of March 2024 until the 3rd of  March 2024 under the theme, “Building Socialism In Our Concrete Conditions With Discipline.”

The Congress was able to resolve on the organizational matters, recruitment strategy, strengthening of VD’s, solutions to economic Recovery and how to improve on service-related matters.

We commend the dedication and commitment of all delegates who participated in the democratic process, contributing to the vibrant and dynamic leadership that will continue to guide and unite the SACP in Gauteng.

COSATU congratulates the new leadership and Provincial Executive Committee, noting that gender-parity was achieved in the Provincial Leadership.

COSATU further congratulates its leadership who was elected as part of the PEC and we believe that the struggle continues. The Provincial Secretary of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union(NEHAWU), Comrade Mzi Tshontshi and the Provincial Chairperson of COSATU, Comrade Amos Monyela are part of the Van Guard’s PEC.

The SACP in the province was the last puzzle in renewing the mandate. We further welcome their clear election plans for the decisive victory of the African National Congress. As alliance partners, we are ready and look forward to implementing the now amplified Joint election program as the immediate task. 

The Federation reaffirms its commitment to working in solidarity with the SACP in Gauteng and we collectively strive for social and economic justice.

We are confident that the newly elected leadership will play a pivotal role in advancing the interests of the working class and marginalized communities. Indeed, socialism is the future.
