DURBAN – As participants march in some centers across the country, Cosatu said the government must do something about the cost of living.

The union said that the country lacks a poor state, pointing to unemployment.

Cosatu and Safta organized what they called a national shutdown across the country, but many ignored the calls.

In KwaZulu-Natal, they presented a memorandum at Durban City Hall, which was accepted by eThekwini council speaker Thabani Nyawose.

Union members in Durban have called on the government to respond to their frustration with high unemployment and the rising cost of living.

Cosatu general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali said he was concerned about the future of the youth.

“These members of Sasco and Cosas will not be able to find work, comrades, when there are already 10 million people out of work.”

He said that the country is collapsing.

“We are on the brink of state collapse, comrades, and we can no longer tolerate these things, comrades,” Ntshalintsali.

Ntshalintshali said they want to see job creation and higher wages.
