Here's what a few of our readers have said about the #NationalDialogue:

"I find it re-assuring and inspiring, and wish the four of them could take over the reins of the country until the election in 2019. They have the experience and integrity to steer us in the right direction. Zuma needs to be stopped NOW." - Susan Ingle

"I fully support the initiative and involvement by heads of states to address crises facing our beloved country. Courts and opposition parties are doing all they can to reverse and stabilise the situation, but the current administration wont back down." - Petros Thabethe
