A night vigil is expected to be held on Thursday in support of former president Jacob Zuma ahead of his court appearance.
Supporters of the former president are expected to march to the Durban High Court on Friday, where Zuma will face corruption charges related to a $2.5 billion arms deal.
5 000 people from various divisions and organisations, including the Black First Land First, are expected to demonstrate.
Eyewitness News reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo shared details on the two-day event.

Their position here is to say the former president is being attacked, he is being prejudiced because he is a champion or radical economic transformation.— Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN reporter
It would be interesting to see how many people might defy the ANC's rule to say you may go and support the president in your personal capacity but do not wear ANC regalia because they have not full backed him as an organsiation.— Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN reporter
Ngcobo says the South African Communist Party and The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) will not be participating.
