JOHANNESBURG - Cosatu General Secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi and his rape accuser will face off on Monday at an internal hearing.
A showdown looms as the 26-year-old mother of two says she believes that the inquiry will get to the truth.
Vavi&39;s accuser has not laid a rape charge against him, though she now faces a criminal investigation herslef, for allegedly trying to extort R2-million from the Cosatu leader.
She claims it was Vavi&39;s wife who, after being made aware of the incident, allegedly suggested the rape accuser was entitled to a payoff.
Noluthando Vavi has categorically denied this, and despite the controversy, says it won&39;t break their marriage.
“It’s sad and it’s unfortunate … But I have forgiven him because he came up very openly to me and he answered all the questions I asked him.
"And he also said he is sorry – he will never do this thing again,” she reported to the press.
Vavi&39;s accuser, however, doesn&39;t believe this is the case, suggesting she was not the only female with whom Vavi acted inappropriately.
