JOHANNESBURG - A group of activists are marching through the streets of the Johannesburg CBD to remember Fezekile Kuzwayo.

The woman, known as Khwezi, accused President Jacob Zuma of rape in 2005.

She passed away last month from an unknown illness.

Feminists groups and activists gathered at the South Gauteng High Court where Kuzwayo's rape trial was heard over 10 years ago.

The group chanted as some held up placards bearing the face Zuma and the word “guilty”.

The activists say they don’t want Kuzwayo's death to be in vain and also want to reclaim her identity.

The group also marched through the CBD to Constitution Hill.
