COSATU mourns the passing on of Comrade Eric 'Stalin' Mtshali
12 October 2018
The Congress of South African Trade Unions has noted with sadness the news of the passing on of the South African Congress of Trade Unions [SACTU] stalwart and the leader of the South African Communist Party, Comrade Eric Stalin Mtshali. Comrade Eric Mtshali remains a living legend of SACTU who started working at the WFTU Headquarters in 1976 with the mission of organizing trade union movement in several countries such as Ethiopia and Namibia. He was originally a dockworker in KwaZulu-Natal.
He was present when COSATU convened its Special National Congress in 2015 to support the federation in its hour of need and in working to restore its hegemonic influence in society. COSATU conveys its heartfelt condolences to his family friends and his beloved SACP. May his soul rest in eternal peace!
Hamba Kahle Comrade Stalin Mtshali!
