Removal of Zuma linked to poor governance, service delivery protests - analyst

Political analyst and Talk At Nine host, Karima Brown, says if Save South Africa doesn't take into account the demands of ordinary South Africans protesting over lack of service delivery, they will be seen as an "elitist movement".

Brown says people are protesting because they feel unheard and government has failed to provide services.

She says there a direct link between corruption and lack of service delivery and campaigns calling for President Jacob Zuma to resign and the voices of communities affected by corruption need to be heard.

If you link that to the fact state money is being misused for President's friends and family... What's happening in these communities is not random. These are communities who are not getting services they ought to be getting.

Karima Brown, political analyst and Talk At Nine host

There is an urgent need for the protests around the removal of the President and the fact that it centres around issues of protecting our institutions to be linked to the very real developments happening in communities, who are main losers when corruption happens.

Brown also spoke about the cost of Helen Zille's Asia trip...
