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

South African opposition parties, religious groups and civil society activists today launched a new alliance to try to force President Jacob Zuma to step down.

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.

Although the intense anger that characterised South Africa in the days following the unceremonious dismissal of former Finance Minister, Pravin Gordhan, and his Deputy, Mcebisi Jonas, has somewhat melted away, opposition parties, civil society and the religious community are not letting up in their quest to remove President Jacob Zuma - this time, joining hands to launch the Freedom Movement.

A Freedom Movement spokesman said the country had been "plunged into a national crisis never seen since 1994".

South Africans have held several protests this month calling for Zuma to resign but the 75-year old leader says he will only quit when his ruling African National Congress asks him to leave. "We can not afford to get exhausted", Mashele said.

"South Africans are anxious about the future of their children and their country".

"It is important that we unite South Africans to bring an end to state capture", the Arch wrote in the letter.

The event Tutu is referring to is a gathering next week at Freedom Park, Pretoria.

"We call upon South Africans to rise and reclaim their power".

"We shall not sit back and watch while our children's future is destroyed by a rogue President working with parasitic private interest ... this is our country, we shall defend it". "Let us stand up and defend our hard-won freedom and the future of our country".
