An intriguing story involving a meeting with President Jacob Zuma at his Nkandla residence is at the centre of the ructions in the metalworkers’ union Numsa, following its president Cedric Gina's resignation this week. It is one of a number of tales being circulated to explain the clash of personalities and reasons for the fallout in the Alliance. On Tuesday, the Numsa leadership hit back at its former president, accusing him of orchestrating a commotion in the union ahead of its crucial special congress next month. Gina’s behaviour leading up to his resignation does seem to be quite odd, and he also seems to have played his cards out. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.
