While the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma is due to take place in Parliament on Tuesday, a group called #UniteBehind coalition will be marching on Monday calling on the ANC to recall President Zuma.
The group is also calling on all MPs to vote according to their constitutional obligations.
According to co-ordinator at Equal Education and organiser of #UniteBehind March, Doron Isaacs, the group is formed by civil rights organisations like the Right2Know Campaign, Social Justice Coalition, and the Treatment Action Campaign who would like to see all the social ills in the country being dealt with.

The group will be assembling at 3pm to begin marching to Parliament, says Isaacs.
He says they will be converging outside Parliament when the Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete will be making her announcement whether the voting will be made through a secret ballot or not.
