SaveSA supports call for secret ballot in motion of no confidence against Zuma
Save South Africa (SaveSA) convener, Sipho Pityana, says SaveSA is now mobilising to show South Africans that majority of people including members of the African National Congress (ANC) no longer have confidence in President Jacob Zuma.
On Friday thousands of South Africans, civil society organisations, unions and political parties took to the streets across the country their dissatisfaction on Zuma's leadership.
The crowd of an estimated 40 000 people gathered at the Union Buildings in Pretoria in the mass protest organised by SaveSA.
Pityana says they will be participating in the march planned by six opposition parties including the Democratic Alliance (DA), Congress of the People (Cope), Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), and United Democratic Movement (UDM).
He also says they will also support the motion of no confidence against the President in the National Assembly on the 18th of April.
We will be out there in numbers on the 18th to show our disapproval.Sipho Pityana, SaveSA convener and Former foreign affairs director general
If we don't succeed on that day we look on other ways of putting pressure, including continuing with public activities.Sipho Pityana, SaveSA convener and Former foreign affairs director general
We are encouraged that the leader of the United Democratic Movement Bantu Holomisa has gone to court to secure secret ballot. We support that, and we look at ways of supporting in that move to afford members of the ANC with a conscience to feel free to support a motion of no confidence.Sipho Pityana, SaveSA convener and Former foreign affairs director general
