Save SA reiterates call for more citizens to become activists

CAPE TOWN – The Save South Africa campaign has reiterated a call for more South Africans to become activists in their communities.
On Wednesday, the lobby group presented what it calls a real State of the Nation Address at the St George’s Cathedral in Cape Town.
Sipho Pityana made scathing remarks about President Jacob Zuma, saying he hopes this will be his last State of the Nation address.
He told the crowd Zuma has failed to deliver on promises relating to unemployment, improved sanitation and free education.
“It’s quite clear that unless we make our voices heard, Zuma will remain president of this country until 2019, if not longer.
But some Save SA supporters did not like Pityana’s criticisms of the African National Congress (ANC) and Zuma and chased him away after the event.
Thandeka Siyobi was among them.
“We’re struggling and we’re students here, but no one is coming to our aid, so we’re not going to be deceived by Sipho Pityana with his agendas.”
Pityana has called on more citizens to join or form their own Save SA groups.
