SA's opposition parties unite for National Day of Action

South Africans are not backing down on the call for President Jacob Zuma to step down.

On Friday thousands of South Africans took to the streets in a national protest against the recent Cabinet reshuffle by Zuma.

Opposition parties will join the masses in what's called a National Day of Action to be held on Wednesday, April 12, coinciding with the President's birthday.

National Chairperson of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Adv Dali Mpofu, says South Africans should continue with protest action until their voices are heard.
