The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) has called for President Jacob Zuma to step-down with immediately so that Cyril Ramaphosa can take over and restore party dignity.
The union has asked President Zuma to do the right thing and step-down from the presidency despite its mother Union Cosatu refraining from that.
Nehawu on Thursday said it would continue to lobby Cosatu to take the same stance as it in terms of Zuma’s future as country president.
Nehawu is the trade union federation’s biggest affiliate and was‚ once upon a time‚ one of Zuma’s biggest supporters.
The union was one of the first bodies within the tripartite alliance to make such a call.
