The tripartite alliance is on rocky ground again,  this time over Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s economic strategy paper.

It was made public on Tuesday and it didn’t take long for the South African Communist Party (SACP)  and Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) to slam the proposals and call for its withdrawal.

The Communists also claim that the economic plan flouts the African National Congress’s (ANC’) election manifesto.

On Thursday Cosatu railed against Mboweni’s strategy to grow the economy.
