Zuma Must Fall Protests Gathers Momentum

Thursday 6 April, Cape Town
A memorial service will be held in honor of Ahmed Kathrada at St. George's Cathedral at 2pm. Former Finance Minister Gordhan will be speaking, as will Archbishop Thabo Makgoba and other civil society leaders. The service is open to everyone and looks set to be a rallying point for the call for Zuma to step down.

The advert for the service states that Kathrada's legacy is "undermined" by Zuma. At 4pm, after the memorial service, "in solidarity with the first camp in Church Square, Pretoria" a group calling itself VukaniMzansi2 will establish a camp near the Iziko Museum/Parliament/St Georges Cathedral.

Friday 7 April, Johannesburg
Protesters from churches, political parties and trade unions will march from Westgate Transport Hub to Mary Fitzgerald Square at 10am. They intend to reach the square by 11:30am. General Secretary of FEDUSA Dennis George said that they will be marching with other unions. 

"It's important for us to work together with them because they have to take the process further by putting in a motion of No Confidence against Zuma," said George of the political unions involved.
