Meanwhile, opposition parties have confirmed that they will hold a national day of action on 12 April, just days before Parliament debates a motion of no confidence in President Zuma.

Take a listen:

Redi Tlhabi interviewed Section 27 Executive Director Mark Heywood on the success of the march and the next step for social justice in South Africa.

The key thing is how to turn a mass movement of one day into a movement that will continue to organise and make itself felt - and not just to get rid of Zuma.

Mark Heywood, Section 27 Executive Director

The day after we get rid of Jacob Zuma we have to start rebuilding this country.
