In tweets: #ZumaMustFall protest heads to Parliament

Hundreds of Capetonians are marching to Parliament to demand that President Jacob Zuma hand in his resignation. 

The protest is one of multiple planned demonstrations across the country – each hoping for a turnout of at least a few hundred people. It’s should perhaps come as little surprise that South Africans are choosing to spend their Freedom Day calling for a change in leadership, as a strong anti-Zuma sentiment has been brewing ever since he decided to axe former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene.

The Cape Town march, in particular, is reminiscent of the  Reconciliation Day #ZumaFallFall protests which took place countrywide in the immediate aftermath of the finance minister debacle and subsequent plummitting of the rand.

Seemingly, note everyone, however, was impressed with the anti-Zuma protesters and their enthusiasm.
