S. Africans launch new movement to oust president

Opposition parties et al form Freedom Movement to kick President Zuma out

The main event the coalition plans to have is a gathering at Freedom Park in Pretoria on April 27.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane said: "Because if we get exhausted we assume that status quo is normal and we dig into another level where we can say let's accept the president as a prerogative to change the minister as he feels like or procurement nuclear. which we can't accept".

"Ordinary South Africans will have this outlet of the Freedom Movement", La Grange said.

A group of political parties, labour organisations and civil society have joined forces to remove President Jacob Zuma from office.

"The political mismanagement of our country has now reached a boiling point; it threatens to collapse the economy". The unemployed will have no hope of finding employment.

It said the removal of former finance minister Pravin Gordhan in a Cabinet reshuffle last month was the culmination of a plot by Zuma and his associates to capture the state and loot resources from the National Treasury. "We believe the longer he stays in office, the more damage he will do", academic and founder Prince Mashele told The Citizen.

"If we get tired‚ Jacob Zuma will destroy this country".

"South Africans are fed up".

Mashele said the immediate objective of this grouping was to help facilitate a large-scale protest outside Parliament‚ when the Motion of No Confidence is debated.

The group's planned march had received support from Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who wrote a letter urging South Africans to participate in the Freedom Day demonstrations. It is important that we unite as South Africans to bring an end to state capture and that we further the values of our democratic society by speaking out against any and all kinds of injustice in our society.

"This is us saying, we are better if we stand together", Maimane said.
