Freedom Day's #ZumaMustFall march organisers call for change and Zuma's removal

Two separate #ZumaMustFall marches are set to take place on Freedom day in Cape Town’s CBD and a number of busy intersections in the townships.

The march is established by citizens who are not pleased with the direction the country appears to be heading.

CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies spoke to organisers of the two marches taking place today, Christelle Scheepers, Organiser of the Cape Town #ZumaMustFall March as well as Solly Moeng, Spokesperson for SA First Forum.

According to Scheepers, the march will start and end at the corner of Keizergracht and Chapel streets from 11am to 3pm.

And the SA First Forum will be staging pickets at a number of busy intersections from 12pm to 2pm.

Solly Moeng, Spokesperson for SA First Forum

This is not the country we signed up for at the dawn of our democracy and we feel we don’t have the ethical leadership that we need

Solly Moeng, Spokesperson for SA First Forum

The core of our problems is that people who are supposed to represent us in parliament don’t really represent us, they are there at the back-end call of their own political masters …

Solly Moeng, Spokesperson for SA First Forum
