JOHANNESBURG – Cosatu wants President Jacob Zuma to step down.

He further said that Zuma has "failed to deal with some most incompetent ministers in his Cabinet".

Ntshalintshali urged Zuma to allow for a new collective to take over but also reaffirmed Cosatu's committed to the tripartite alliance.
