South Africa: WASP registers for the 2014 elections

Workers And Socialist Party

The Workers And Socialist Party (WASP) in South Africa has registered for this year's elections to the national assembly and for the provincial legislatures of North West, Limpopo and Gauteng.

The presidential candidate and number one on WASP's national list is Moses Mayekiso. Moses was a leading trade union activist in the 1970s and 1980s for the Metal and Allied Workers Union (Mawu) of which he became general secretary.

Mawu, along with other unions, founded Cosatu (the largest trade union federation in South Africa) in 1985 and was a key founding union of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa).

Moses became the first general secretary of Numsa, elected from jail for his labour movement activism and anti-apartheid activities.

He was the hero of an international campaign demanding his release and demonstrations to "free Comrade Moss" were held in cities around the world.

Moses was general secretary of Numsa when the union in 1993 adopted a resolution calling for the formation of a workers' party.

In joining WASP and taking his place in the leadership, Moses is retying the knot of history.

Please donate towards the WASP election appeal by writing cheques to "South African Miners Fund" and post to South African Miners' Solidarity, PO Box 66682, London E11 9ER
