South Africans protest Zuma as country downgraded to junk

The cabinet shake-up prompted protest demonstrations around the country, and there is speculation that Zuma could be forced out of office before his term ends.

The legality of the protests is still under question as the police said Thursday that the march in the capital did not have the permission of the authorities. "Deliver us from evil and Zuma must go".

Employees in the hospitality sector in Sandton use their lunch break to protest against Zuma. The removal of Gordhan will frighten away desperately needed foreign investment and could open the way to bad deals, like the nuclear plants from Russian Federation, that South Africa cannot afford.

He urged South Africans to unite regardless of their political affiliations and push for Zuma's removal.

Nkosi said Cosas came out in their "numbers" to defend the ANC and Luthuli House against the DA and Economic Freedom Fighters.

One protester, Lydia Potgieter, 69, told the Guardian that she was at the march to "support the efforts of all South Africans to be rid of a corrupt system that is eating away everything we have worked for over the last 20 years". ANC members in military uniforms who oppose the protest were posted outside.

"I think everyone in South Africa is fed up with Zuma", Hilder said.

Zuma doesn't understand how his actions can influence decisions by rating companies, and his actions showed a "recklessness" that ruined South Africa's credibility, former President Kgalema Motlanthe said in an April 3 interview.

Zuma this week appeared to have quelled a rebellion within the ANC despite senior party figures, including Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, speaking out against Gordhan's sacking.

Ethekwini mayor Zandile Gumede said the region would keep backing Zuma because "an attack on him is an attack on the ANC".

Zuma, 74, will face a no-confidence motion in parliament on April 18 sponsored by opposition parties.

Marchers say they hope their participation in the march will evoke change within the structures of the anc. Many wore the green T-shirts of SaveSA. Some gathered on the city's northern beach; others rallied in the city centre.

"Be courageous and comradely, confront a comrade if you have got problems with (a) comrade, don't use comrades who have died as a platform to perpetuate disunity", he said without mentioning any names.

Syriana Maesela, 65, a retiree was on her way by train to Pretoria to join the march carrying a South African flag.

Members of the influential ANC Youth League gathered in downtown Durban, singing "Awuleth'umshini wami", a song popularised by Zuma, which means "bring me my gun" and held placards supporting the president.
