Sipho Pityana, Save SA convener says what transpired at the ANC NEC meeting suggests that the voices of reason within the ANC are growing and they are losing patience on this matter.
Pityana described the decision by the ANC NEC not to remove President Zuma as a "terrible decision".
I am very pleased that the debate happened. I am proud of the leadership of the ANC that has conscience and has heard the voices of the people and decided to debate on the matter. It must have been difficult to vote on your comrade and leader.— Sipho Pityana, Chairman of the Council for the Advancement of the SA Constitution
Pityana says this terrible decision by the NEC shows that it is time South Africans stood up and signed the petition to have Zuma removed.
He says the petition is on the Save South Africa website and is easily accessible
We encourage people to sign up because now we have entered the realm of numbers, is this coming from Sipho and his friends or is this the voice of South Africans?— Sipho Pityana, Chairman of the Council for the Advancement of the SA Constitution
