The South African Communist Party (SACP) has called on the government not to give tenders to companies that use labour brokers in its multibillion-rand infrastructure programme.

In its New Year’s message on Monday the SACP said companies using labour brokers should be excluded from the infrastructure programme.

SACP spokesperson Malesela Maleka said workers in this country should be given decent jobs.

He said the multibillion-rand infrastructure programme had the potential to create hundreds of thousands of jobs.

It was important that companies that use workers supplied by labour brokers should not be awarded any of the tenders linked to the infrastructure programme.

President Jacob Zuma announced an R845bn infrastructure development plan early last year.

Transnet and Eskom are the major state-owned entities that are driving the infrastructure plan.

Maleka also said since Zuma took over in 2009 a lot of progress has been made in a number of fronts, including improved matric results and the increase in life expectancy.

He said they were concerned by the action of the financial sector in reckless lending. He said this was seen by the growth of unsecured lending that was taking place.

He said the SACP would work together with newly elected leadership of the ANC following the ruling party’s conference in Mangaung last month.

Zuma was re-elected ANC president with businessman Cyril Ramaphosa as his deputy.
