The preparation for the dethronement of President Jacob Zuma has gathered a bigger and wider momentum, following new measures adopted by the Save South Africa Campaign.
On Wednesday, the anti-Zuma campaign movement announced its plans to hold town hall meetings in all the provinces in the country.
The movement said the campaign boat will be heading to Nelson Mandela Bay, Eastern Cape on Wednesday for a series of town hall meetings – from where it will head to other provinces to intensify and create bigger awareness for Zuma to step down.
Speaking in a statement, the movement said it has kick-started its work, adding that the objective of the movement saw the light of the day following overwhelming supports from concerned South Africans.
Chairman of the AngloGold Ashanti Sipho Pityana said in the statement that their movement was gaining momentum day by day, with a regional co-ordinating structure being established in the Eastern Cape.
“More than ever, our energies are focused on putting an end to state capture, restoring the integrity of the state, and putting an end to President Jacob Zuma’s corrupt leadership,” he stated.
Pityana, a die-hard critic of President Zuma said the president needs to leave because he is the worst president the ANC has ever produced. He upheld that South Africa is currently facing an onslaught from a gang of rogues hellbent on undermining the country’s constitution and the sovereignty of the beautiful republic.
Other bigwigs in the Save South Africa Campaign include but not limited to businessman and long-time African National Congress member Sipho Pityana, former ministers Trevor Manuel, Ronnie Kasrils, Barbara Hogan and other activists.
On November 2, the movement launched the first phase of its mandate when it took part in the showdown against President Zuma’s State of Capture interdictory application and a fraud charge against Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
