The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has rejected an apology by Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba for his remarks about ebola. And the Human Rights Commission says it will be contacting Mashaba about his remarks "which could be regarded as a violation of the constitution".
The union in Gauteng urged city residents not to accept the apology because it was not “genuine”.
Mashaba made controversial remarks on Twitter about his citizen's arrest of an undocumented foreign national pushing cow heads in a trolley in the CBD.
