Tomorrow, Tuesday 8 August 2017, Leaders of opposition political parties, civil society groups, and trade unions will lead a march to Parliament in support of our united call for Jacob Zuma to be removed as President of our nation.
In the 100 months Jacob Zuma has been President of South Africa, he has stolen the people’s money, broken our constitution and his oath of office, and sold off our country to a small group of very wealthy individuals. Ordinary South Africans now feel the damage caused by this captured man. The economy is falling apart, factories and mines are closing down, and thousands of people are losing their jobs.
While the removal of Zuma will not solve every problem in our nation, it would be the beginning of a national rebuilding project that is urgently required This is precisely the spirit that brought opposition parties and civil society together, to join hands with all patriotic South Africans who want to defend the future of their country.
Jacob Zuma has brought our nation to its knees. We call on all Members of Parliament to do the right thing and remove Jacob Zuma.
The march will include political parties DA, EFF, UDM, COPE, IFP, ACDP, VF+, APC, Agang, and AIC. Civil society groups including The Freedom Movement, OUTA, SaveSA, ZumaMustFall, and FutureSA will join, along with trade unions SAFTU and FEDUSA.
Details of the march are as follows:
Starting Point: Parking lot outside Fabric City, Keizersgracht Street, Cape Town
End Point: Corner of Roeland Street and St Johns Road, Cape Town
