JOHANNESBURG — Cosatu President Zingiswa Losi has challenged South African Communist Party (SACP) delegates to the 15th Communist Party National Congress to develop practical solutions to address a myriad of economic crises facing the country.

Losi told delegates in Boksburg that economic recovery would hinge on a development state with capabilities, calling on the tripartite alliance to action.

The Cosatu President has painted a dire situation for South Africa as it faces record unemployment, rising costs of living, collapsing state institutions and municipalities paralyzed locals.

The country’s economy has also barely recovered from the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, unrest in July 2021 as well as power outages.

Losi described them as a sign of a country on the verge of implosion.

But she said it was not all catastrophic and threw her weight behind the economic recovery and reconstruction plan.

“ERRP is a plan to enable the economy to recover from state capture, corruption and COVID-19. Further commitments are needed on the long-term transformation of the economy “We need to hear the voice of the party in these engagements. We need to revisit the party in Nedlac as part of the community delegation,” Losi said.

She added that continuing to implement the plan would help revive the economy and rescue Eskom and other struggling state-owned companies.
