Organisers all set for #ZumaMustFall march in Cape Town

Several marches and even a picnic have been planned in what has been termed a nationwide anti-Jacob Zuma revolt.

The president’s decision to remove former finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene sparked the campaign of marches under the movement #ZumaMustFall.

Event organiser for the group Unite against Corruption Miles Giljam, said that unions, churches, NGOs and citizens will gather to speak out against a system of corruption that is undermining South African governance.

Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

This not just marching against one person, this is marching against the system of corruption that has taken our country.

Miles Giljam, Unite against Corruption co-ordinator

It is time to get up and say, not on my watch, not in my name.
