The march follows the ConCourt judgment which found that Zuma had failed to uphold, defend and respect the constitution.

President Jacob Zuma is Tsotsi number one, according to DA leader Mmusi Maimane. Speaking outside the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg on Friday, Maimane took a swipe at Zuma and the entire ANC leadership.

“Zuma is a Tsotsi who is surrounded by other Tsotsis. “Whenever Zuma is under attack, he is always surrounding by Cyril, Jeff Radebe and others,” Maimane said to a resounding applause from DA supporters. He said Zuma should take his apology and leave.

“Take your apology….we will meet again here in the Concourt. “Zuma is married to many wives therefore he has many ANCs….Jacob Zuma must voetsek.”

On Friday morning Democratic Alliance gathered in Braamfontein ahead of a march to the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg. Dressed in the famous blue regalia, party supporters were seen dancing and chanting songs, calling for the removal of President Jacob Zuma, who has been under enormous pressure since the damning Constitutional Court ruling in the Nkandla matter.

The march was being led by DA leader Mmusi Maimane. Other party leaders were also expected to take part in the march. Officers from the SAPS and Metro were also there keeping a close eye on proceedings.

The main purpose of the DA march to the Constitutional Court is to demonstrate to the world that President Jacob Zuma is not fit to lead the country, the party’s Western Cape leader Patricia de Lille told The Citizen on Friday morning. She said through the march, the party was also exerting more pressure on the ANC to recall President Jacob Zuma following the damning Constitutional Court ruling in the controversial Nkandla matter.

“We want to tell government that enough is enough…..Jacob Zuma must do the right thing and step down,” she said.
