Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga says he is more than a 100 percent behind the march and will march alongside thousands to the Union Buildings.

The mayor of Tshwane said people needed change.

“We are here today to say enough is enough. We need to do what’s right for everyone and not what’s right for only a few.”

Asked if he was marching to the Union Buildings, Msimanga said he was more than committed and would make his way to the Union Buildings.

“Zuma just wants people who are doing his bid and not the South African bid. This is why all South Africans are here today. ”

He said in Thursday’s State of the City Address it was clarified that the march would forge-on on Friday, despite a rumour of it being cancelled.

He added that the people of South Africa wanted a system that worked for the people and not only certain individuals.
