Cape Town – The ANC in Durban plans to hold a massive march in support of President Jacob Zuma who it believes is being targeted in a bid to overthrow the government.

"As the ANC, we are ready to defend our democratically elected President Jacob Zuma and the entire democratic government against any attempts at unconstitutional regime change spearheaded by counter-revolutionaries such as Julius Malema, peace-time heroes and agents of monopoly capital like Sipho Pityana," a statement said.

The regional wing of the ANC said a group of people want to install a ''puppet government'' and it is tired of them.

"We are ready for them."

The region continued: "We call upon all the masses of our people in the entire eThekwini region to join the march so that we can send the clearest message that we are ready in our tireless efforts to defend this country amid unprecedented pressures from imperialist forces and their lackeys."

The "Anti Regime Change March" sets off from the King DiniZulu Park at 11:00 on Saturday and will head to the Durban City Hall.
