The South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) in Limpopo Province has learned with utter dismay the racist remarks made against our members at the Modimolle/ Mookgopong Municipality by the Council Speaker Crll Abrie. Our members were called the k-word, thieves and further saying that they are just like their “father” President Zuma. The crime committed by these workers was being in possession of tools of trade which they use as part of their daily work, seemingly the Speaker does not want workers to perform their duties.
