Enough is enough #HandsOffPravin

The South African First Forum is congregating on Friday outside the St George's cathedral to show solidarity in supporting Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Rod Solomon, event spokesperson says they want to hold public representatives accountable and that the State resources are not theirs to loot.

He says citizens of this country should be active and not remain quite while the country is mismanaged and looted.

Our people have lost respect for our President. We cannot believe anything the he and the rest of his executives tell us.

Rod Solomon, Event spokesperson

In essence we would like to say today 'hands off Pravin' and we call on our people to speak truth to power.

Rod Solomon, Event spokesperson

We call on South Africans to regain our voice and hold our public representatives accountable from whatever political party they come from.

Rod Solomon, Event spokesperson

This meeting is taking place at 12:00 on Friday 2 September outside St George's cathedral.
