Mixed reaction to Save SA motion of no confidence campaign

The people's motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma by Save SA has been met with mixed reaction from South Africans.

The movement, led by businessman Sipho Pityana, was not well received by various people who accused the movement of speaking up only to serve elitist interests.

The organisation - comprised of civil society organisations, business leaders, prominent individuals and ordinary South Africans - was launched last month and joined the chorus for the removal of Zuma.

702's Stephen Grootes spoke to member of the steering committee and Section 27 founder, Mark Heywood, about what they hope to achieve.

There comes a point where politicians and the political system has to listen to people, that is the basis of this campaign.
