Thousands of South Africa took to the street of major cities on Wednesday, to protest against government corruption, state capture and job losses.
The protest which was organised by the congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) has more than one million members in the country. Protesters were seen carrying placards, requesting the resignation of president Zuma, following the allegations on him which include; the use of state money to renovate his personal home and letting the infamous Gupta family pull strings in his government.
Zuma has faced a lot of demand to quit this year. Meanwhile it is remaining two years to the end of his reign as he is serving his last term as president.
Calls from the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) for him to resign as well as failed motions of no confidence, were compounded by calls from some members of the ruling party ANC to remove him from office.
The Vice President Cyril Ramaphosa was supported earlier this year by COSATU to replace Zuma.
