The murder of a senior investigator at an auditing firm has delayed a report into allegations of corruption against Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi, the Sunday Independent reported.

SizweNtsalubaGobodo forensic services director Lawrence Moepi was shot dead in his car at the firm's premises in Houghton last month.

He was reportedly leading the investigation into the sale of Cosatu's old building in Braamfontein, which Vavi has been accused of mishandling.

The Sunday Independent reported that, according to agenda notes of a meeting of Cosatu's central executive committee to be held in a week's time, the firm had indicated that it had wanted to present the findings in November, but that Moepi's death had jeopardised the chances of it doing so. All the meeting would receive was a progress report. – Sapa
