Save SA organiser Themba Masango said the preparations for the march were full steam ahead. "People have been sending us emails, SMSes and Facebook is abuzz. Telling us they are coming to the march on Friday morning."

Masango and several others who are past of Save SA's campaign were still making last minute preparations at Church Square in Pretoria were the march is set to begin.

Some of the people were singing and dancing to songs which were calling for Zuma's resignation.

Masango said Save SA has beefed up its security with extra private security and police.

He said the march will have over 1 000 marshals and private security to keep the march peaceful.
