Jim's party is all about him

Sunday World - - Opinion -

FIRST, Na­tional Union of Me­tal­work­ers of South Africa boss Irvin Jim spent his time at­tack­ing the ANC and the SACP.

Then, he with­drew Numsa’s sup­port for Cosatu and the ANC.

In all these in­stances it was all about him and not the work­ers. It was all about his ego.

Now he wants to launch a new party.

This new party is not about work­ers.

It is about mak­ing money for him­self and his friend Zwelinz­ima Vavi and the other lead­ers in Numsa who are de­stroy­ing Numsa bit by bit.

Numsa mem­bers should not be fooled.

They will ob­vi­ously be called to some kan­ga­roo spe­cial con­fer­ence to rub­ber-stamp a self­ish de­ci­sion that has al­ready been taken by Jim and com­pany for the ben­e­fit of Jim’s fief­dom.
