JOHANNESBURG – A march for political change organised by the Democratic Alliance has started on Friday morning in Johannesburg, with thousands of people dressed in blue heading for the Constitutional Court.

The #MarchForChange was joined by DA leaders Mmusi Maimane and Patricia DeLille, among others.

The DA said in a statement on Wednesday that it had committed to various forms of mass mobilisation and protest “in order to highlight the importance of the judgment and the ANC’s refusal to remove a President who does not care about the Constitution and the people of South Africa.

“In order for South Africa’s constitutional democracy to survive and thrive‚ Zuma can no longer occupy the Presidency. We encourage all South Africans who believe in change and the future of South Africa to join the march to the Constitutional Court.”
