South Africa’s largest trade union federation on Tuesday elected a woman president, a first for the 33-year-old labour movement that helped lead the fight against apartheid.
Zingiswa Losi, 42, was nominated unopposed at an annual meeting of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in Johannesburg’s northern Midrand suburb.
The former soldier served in the South African army for three years before going to work at the Ford car plant in the southern city of Port Elizabeth.
Cosatu plays a key role in South African politics and provided logistical support to the anti-apartheid struggle.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
