JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's biggest opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (DA), says it expects thousands of people to march to the Constitutional Court this morning to put more pressure on President Jacob Zuma to resign.

The DA claims Zuma doesn't care about the Constitution and the country's citizens.

Last month, the highest court in the land delivered its Nkandla ruling which found Zuma violated the Constitution.

The DA's Mabine Seabe says the party expects as many 10,000 supporters to join its leader, Mmusi Maimane, in a march to the Constitutional Court.

He says in order for the country's Constitutional democracy to survive, Zuma must step down.

"We need for president Jacob Zuma to step down because he's not fit to stay in that office, especially after he violated his oath of office, as well as the Constitution."

Earlier this month, struggle stalwarts like Ahmed Kathrada, George Bizos and Trevor Manuel called on Zuma to resign, but the African National Congress (ANC) is standing by its president as it heads toward the 2016 local government elections.
