The union has laid charges of corruption, theft, fraud and mismanagement of state funds against former office bearers, including former president Jacob Zuma and former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni.

Solidarity says its scope of accountability will, however, focus on  Denel workers, some of whom have not been paid.

The trade union says it may have to use AfriForums prosecuting units to fast-track prosecutions.

Solidarity's Anton van der Bijl said, "we'll use our own prosecuting authority through Afriforum. And yeah at the end of the day like I've said. The taxpayers and our members deserve better....I won't say there's politcla Interference but we have seen through out complaints we've laid again mister molefe in the the Denel matter that the National Prosecuting Authority doesn't seem to have the will to prosecute the matters."
