DA to 'up the ante' on mass action against Zuma

Thousands of Democratic Alliance (DA) members have marched to the Constitutional Court to put more pressure on President Jacob Zuma to resign.

DA spokesperson Mabine Seabe says the opposition party also wants to remind South Africans that change will not take place over night.

He advised, that citizens will only see change if they vote for a political party that reflects and upholds the Constitution.

The DA has joined forces with civil society groups and other parties to mobilise mass action against Zuma.

As opposition parties we've committed to various forms of protest until Zuma steps down or is fired... That is a crook sitting at the Union Buildings, and he should be removed as soon as possible... It cannot be business as usual.

Mabine Seabe, DA spokesperson

Seabe says there will be more marches and efforts, calling to unseat Zuma.
