Future SA urges MPs to vote against Zuma
Future SA patrons say the organisation has been formed to tackle state capture and rebuild state integrity.
JOHANNESBURG - Future South Africa, a coalition of civil society organisations has urged Members of Parliament (MPs) to vote against President Jacob Zuma when a motion of no confidence is heard in Parliament next Tuesday.
It was launched on Monday afternoon in Auckland park.
Future SA patrons say the organisation has been formed to tackle state capture and to rebuild state integrity.
One of the people who have joined the organisation is South Africa's first black person to represent the country as the ambassador to the United States, Sheila Sisulu.
Sisulu says MPs should vote for President Zuma to go.
“We must ensure that parliamentarians hear the call of the ordinary South Africans clearly and put the interests of the country first. Parliamentarians as public representatives are duty bound to vote Zuma out of office.”
The organisation has also urged South Africans to take to the streets next Tuesday in support of no confidence against Zuma.
