Cape Town - Marchers in the Cape Town leg of the #SaveSouthAfrica campaign alternated between sheep noises and struggle dirge Senzeni na outside the province's NPA offices.

About 300 people marched in the heat up Wale Street singing "What have we done?" while campaign member Crispin Sonn railed against corruption.

Western Cape director of public prosecutions Rodney de Kock listened as convener Rod Solomons called for the resignation of his boss Shaun Abrahams.

"Because he is not fit to hold office," bellowed Solomons.

This was after Abrahams announced the NPA was withdrawing its intention to prosecute Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and former SA Revenue Service officials Ivan Pillay and Oupa Magashule for corruption.

Solomons suggested De Kock as a suitable candidate for the job.

The campaign also called for the resignation of Zuma, Cabinet and the Speaker of Parliament, Baleka Mbete.

The Public Protector's report on "state capture" should also be released immediately, it said.

This was after Zuma withdrew an application to stop its immediate release on Wednesday.

Vytjie Mentor, who alleged she was offered a Cabinet post by the Gupta family, joined the marchers briefly for a prayer.

De Kock told News24 later on the side-lines that the memorandum would be forwarded to Abrahams.
