Rape ac­cused Vavi ad­mits Cosatu sex

The New Age (Western Cape) - - News -

IT WASN’T a good year for em­bat­tled Cosatu boss Zwelinz­ima Vavi, ac­cused of rap­ing a ju­nior col­league at Cosatu House, a scan­dal that saw him be­ing sus­pended. But even more news­wor­thy was that the woman de­manded R2m for her si­lence, and also with­drew her “griev­ance” at the mid­dle of an in­ter­nal Cosatu dis­ci­plinary pro­ceed­ing. To make mat­ters worse, me­dia cov­er­age tended to fo­cus more on Vavi be­ing a vic­tim of po­lit­i­cal on­slaught. Al­though Vavi de­nied rap­ing her he pub­licly ad­mit­ted to hav­ing sex­ual in­ter­course at the Cosatu build­ing on Jan­uary 25.
