PRETORIA - The Save South Africa campaign says the ANC needs to take a stand.

Civil society, business, labour and religious leaders rallied behind calls for President Jacob Zuma to step down.

They stood united under the banner, Save South Africa on Wednesday in a People's Assembly.

 

 

The campaign helped voice concerns about corruption.

Speakers hammered the need for ethical leadership.

Retired Constitutional Court Judge Zak Yacoob questioned the ANC's lack of intervention.

“What does one say about that fact that even until now, the majority of the ANC working committee still think for some reason or another that this dirty-handed president must stay," he said.

"So it must follow that there is some dirt on the hands of the majority of the NEC of African National Congress and this is the truth we must face.”
