 A group of more than 100 people gathered at the Kemo Hotel in Kimberley this morning in support of the Anti-Zuma march ahead of this afternoon’s vote of no confidence. 

The mostly Cope, Democratic Alliance and EFF supporters marched down Pniel Street, into Compound Street, before taking a right turn into Phakamile Mabija Road, and gathering at the City Hall, where they are being addressed by various local leaders.
Under the banner of Save SA, members of the group called for Zuma to go, adding their voices to calls to reduce the price of electricity.
Addressing the marchers, Cope member Fred Wyngaard urged MPs to vote Zuma out in today’s motion of no confidence, pointing out that the President was damaging the economy.

Wyngaard asked how Zuma’s son, Duduzane Zuma become a millionaire and questioned whether Lucky Montana, who heads the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Pasa) had used the rail company’s funds to buy the house in Oranzezicht.
It was reported recently that the up-market property in Cape Town had raised more questions about Montana’s relationships with business people who were awarded contracts by Prasa.

EFF leader Aubrey Baartman has predicted that Zuma will not be in Kimberley tomorrow for Women’s Day celebrations. He urged South Africans not to tire of the fight to get rid of Zuma, pointing out that SA citizens could not sit back and leave the country in its quagmire.
Chanting “Pantsi Zuma Pantsi” , DA MPL Ismail Obaray said the ANC had failed dismally, adding that Zuma had been captured by the Guptas “like a puppet”.

He too called for MPs to vote according to their consciences and not for the Guptas, indicating that criminals were running the country. Obaray urged South Africans to unite to secure the future of the country.

A large screen television set will be set up at the City Hall to allow those participating in the Save SA march to watch the motion of no confidence live in Parliament from 2pm.

COPE councillor Rosie Ludick has added her voice urging Zuma to empower communities with “the money he stole” and has called for his impeachment.
