Media Release: Immediate

The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has taken note of recent media reports about the arrest and court appearances of Miss Colleen Khumalo and an associate of hers, relating to allegations of misappropriation of an estimated R50m in donor funds meant for the SACTWU Worker Health Project and other South African NGO’s.

Ms Khumalo is a previous CEO of the SACTWU Worker Health Project (SWHP).

We welcome the Hawks’ investigation in this regard, and will fully support it. We are intolerant of donor funds being used for anything else other than what it was intended for.

We condemn the alleged corruption of Miss Khumalo and others involved in this matter, and insist that the law must take its full course. If the allegations are proven to be true and they are found guilty, they must rot in jail for a long time.

We clarify that the alleged misappropriated funds does not involve a single cent of SACTWU monies directly, or any funds received from our members’ subscriptions, or any employer levy contributions to the SWHP.

We further clarify that this matter was fully reported to the SACTWU constitutional structures during the course of last year.
