The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it will go ahead with a planned march to Luthuli House in Johannesburg on Friday.
The party announced last week its intention to table a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma in Parliament after a cabinet reshuffle that led to the axing of Pravin Gordhan as Finance Minister.
The scheduled march is aimed at lobbying African National Congress MPs to vote with them.

Meanwhile formal disciplinary action is being instituted against Western Cape Premier Helen Zille over a series of comments on colonialism.
On Sunday DA leader Mmusi Maimane said that the hearing will come to a finding and that the party cannot be brought into disrepute.
