A POSTER, with a message “Zuma must fall”, was removed by Greater Kokstad Municipality in Hope Street in Kokstad last Friday, but not before many people took photographs of it.

Municipal spokesperson Sabelo Ncwane said the poster was put up illegally and no formal application was made. “The municipality decided to remove the poster because proper procedures were not followed.”

It is suspected the poster was put by those who support the movement against President Jacob Zuma as many political parties and civil society groups protested against him in various cities last week.

Harry Gwala ANCYL secretary, Qiniso Ntozakhe said the people who put up the poster are opportunistic and don’t have the interest of South Africans at heart. He said the youth league commends Zuma’s cabinet reshuffle and they will protect him.

Economic Freedom Fighters regional commissar in Harry Gwala, Dumisani Dlamini, said campaigns against Zuma were initiated by EFF and other political parties after many mistakes have been made by government.

Bradwyn Marnce, the deputy chairperson of DA in Harry Gwala said Zuma has put the country’s economy at risk and many people are going to suffer because of this.

“The president does not care about the people of the country and we cannot have a government that undermines the Constitution.

“The ruling party under President Zuma has broken Parliament and the country. Our mission is to remove Zuma as president and march for change to make South Africa better,” said Marnce.

ANC chairperson in Kokstad sub-region, Phumzile Nocanda said opposition parties must stop calling for Zuma to be removed. He said the ANC will decide about the future of their president.
