Listen to the conversation below:

We're almost sitting at 40 000 people that have signed up to the Zuma Must Fall campaign... A lot of people sit back and just tweet about it.

Brent, caller from Bryanston

Reality is going forward, maybe the next president will start explaining things... I just think we mustn't overreact about the change because it's ot as serious as it may seem.

Bruce, caller from Randburg

In the next elections, we should be careful of voting for people who have got nothing to lose because those are the people who will take the country down.

George, caller from Centurion

Zuma represents the tip of the iceberg...We can get rid of Zuma but the problem will remain.

Rashaad, caller from Belhar
