High spirits in Pretoria as protesters prepare for anti-Zuma march

Before the sun had risen on Wednesday‚ EFF supporters had already gathered at Church Square in Pretoria ahead of the national Day of Action march‚ calling on President Jacob Zuma to resign.

Music reverberated around the square‚ as a small group danced while bearing placards saying “Zuma Must Fall” and “Vote EFF”.

In other areas of the square‚ fires are being lit and food stalls are already doing a roaring trade.

The Day of Action is supported by several opposition parties and civic organisations. Protesters plan to march to the Union Buildings to make their voices heard.

The anti-Zuma march comes amid growing pressure on the president to step down. Opposition parties have also vowed to band together to bring a vote of no confidence to parliament.

Wednesday is also Zuma’s birthday‚ which the ANC is celebrating with a huge party in Kliptown‚ Soweto.

    Our country is pro democracy. Our current president has been acting in a reckless manner and needs to be held accountable. He has amassed hundreds of millions of Rands for his personal gain. This country belongs to the people of South Africa. The people of South Africa want him out and a new capable President sworn in. Politics is a dirty business and it is about time that someone with intellect needs to run this country objectively rather than running it to the ground. A new President should be chosen on merit rather than, on color!
