Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu)-led national strike supported by the African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng and the South African Communist Party (SACP) is reportedly underway and said to focus at expedite the process of setting up an inquiry into state capture.
The Cosatu-led strike is expected to take place in each of the country’s nine provinces, with the biggest and largest strike expected to be in Johannesburg.
Furthermore, delays and long travel times are also expected on the roads as the strike has commenced.
Here is a look into the national Cosatu-led strike:

On the other hand, many thought the strike was not only about state capture but also a low key Ramaphosa campaign as songs of being ready for Ramaphosa and Zuma must go, were heard among those taking part in the strike.
This is sadly true. Though I appreciate the strike against the Zuptas but this is low key Ramaphosa campaign #CosatuStrike 👎🏼✊🏼

Cosatu has reduced to individual values than organizational values. This is no strike in our interest but that if Ramaphosa #CosatuStrike
