Many South Africans are not happy with the presidency of Jacob Zuma and protesters have taken to the streets to state their stance.

"We are here to reiterate the stance taken by Cosatu that comrade Jacob Zuma must go because he is a liability to the country and the future of our children."

A member of the Nehawu branch in Tembisa said he was ready for a new president.

"We came here because we want Zuma to step down, that is the only purpose, that is the only reason why I am here."

Another marcher said that he joined the march because "corruption was a crime against humanity". 

"We are tired of Zuma, he and his cabinet must just go," the man said.

One protester in Johannesburg said, "We are here to register our concern, particularly state capture. Those who are involved in capturing our state must be brought to book.

After gathering, Cosatu's Vuyo Monyela told protesters that their first stop in Johannesburg would be at the offices of "Mr 'Black Like Me'", he said, making a reference to Mayor Herman Mashaba.  

A Cosatu member who led the march said, "It is a well-known fact that services in Johannesburg have collapsed since Herman Mashaba took over."

He also told the marchers that they were protesting against state capture. "The president of the country, Jacob Zuma, must step down," he said.
