It's a moral call as they say.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
Nicolaides says the SACC wants a dissolution of Parliament and early elections so that government can receive a fresh mandate to address a number of issues facing South Africa, particularly that of 'state capture'.
SACC hopes an early election will help rebuild the moral fibre of South Africa and end the disgrace brought on by President Jacob Zuma, she reports.
They want to call on government to realise there are moral issues that need to be addressed.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
