There is widespread corruption in South Africa, and it is being assisted by the commercial sector, auditing firms as well as politicians, according to Shilowa of the South African Federation Trade Unions.
He went on to say that the argument that only Zuma was supporting corruption is inaccurate, as it is still happening under the new administration of president Cyril Ramaphosa.
"Corruption was never an issue under Zuma, and it continues to be so under Ramaphosa's leadership today. It's a problem with the ANC; "he remarked.
The United Democratic Movement comrade is the newest opponent of Ramaphosa's new dawn, joining the chorus. Citizens have expressed concern that President Cyril Ramaphosa is becoming everything that President Jacob Zuma was accused of being throughout his tenure as president.
Some have argued that Jacob Zuma's so-called nine lost years were better than Cyril Ramaphosa's new dawn, which is defined by loadshedding, price hikes, and high unemployment rates..
He has an important role to play as the ANC prepares for its upcoming elective conference in order to win over people who plan on voting the ANC out of office in 2024.
Unions have been on Ramaphosa's tail, pleading with him to raise their wages as the cost of living continues to rise.
Even though union leaders are expected to speak for employees as one, Shilowa expressed her displeasure at the fact that they are fighting between themselves.
Before the meeting, Zwelinzima Vavi and Irvine Jim had both been suspended from the organization.
Shilowa compares the conflict between Vavi and Irvin Jim to the arguments given by the Cosatu to lift the union's embargo.
"When I saw you suspending each other in the buildup to this congress, I was shocked.
There is a widespread belief that labor unions are ineffective and only exist for the benefit of their own leaders and members. This is an important question to ask yourself: what do I contribute? "Shilowa made the comment.
