Trade union federation the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has once again called on the African National Congress (ANC) to recall President Jacob Zuma to save the country from "embarrassment".

Cosatu in Gauteng announced on Friday that it was all systems go for its national strike against State capture, corruption and job losses.

"In our view every day [Zuma] is allowed to continue as president of the country such a day becomes a wasted day for the advancement of the revolution in our country," the trade union's provincial secretary Dumisani Dakile said while briefing the media in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

"The president has continued to become a liability to the revolution and the progressive forces in the country and also across the globe."

The march is expected to take place on Wednesday, September 27.

Dakile said all Cosatu affiliates in various sectors would join the strike.

He called upon the national executive committee of the ANC to "save us from embarrassment that the country and movement continue to be exposed to by the president.

"The killing of various comrades and cadres of the movement for having taken a stand against corruption and having tried to the best of their ability to expose it further demonstrate the level of decay under the leadership of the president," he said.

Dakile said Cosatu members had highlighted that they could no longer "fold our arms and rely on the boardrooms while the country is being sold to the highest bidder".

Relations between Cosatu, the South African Communist Party and ANC are at an all-time low after Zuma reshuffled his Cabinet in March without consulting its alliance partners.
