Pietermaritzburg motorists driving under a prominent bridge in the KwaZulu-Natal city hooted as they saw a poster calling for President Jacob Zuma to go.

The sign: “!!!Hoot!! Zuma must go” attracted attention with people taking pictures of the poster on Mayor’s Walk Bridge and hooting in agreement, Beeld reported today.

The “a” in Zuma was the anarchy symbol.

Adam Steyn, who also stopped to take pictures, said Zuma should not be leading the country any more.

“People are struggling. I am disappointed. Zuma is not doing anything and should resign,” he was quoted as saying.

“But whoever hung up this poster has a lot of courage.”

Beeld reported that two men put up the poster during the night.

One motorist stopped and hooted for a long time before driving away.

Lucky Kwela criticised Zuma for making security upgrades at his private homestead in Nkandla while people were struggling.

“I voted for him in 2009, but I don’t like him any more. We are tired of empty promises,” he said.

“Maybe Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa will do better. But Zuma must go.”

However, another motorist, Mandy Spenceley, said though she was dissatisfied with Zuma, she found the poster disrespectful.
