JOHANNESBURG – The Western Cape Polices operational plan will swing into action in the Cape Town CBD today ahead of planned marches to Parliament.

The Hashtag Unite Behind Coalition of civil rights and faith based organisations - will this afternoon march to call on ANC MPs to vote in favour of a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma in Parliament on Tuesday.

The police's Novela Potelwa has urged marchers to follow the law.

“We will have police on foot, some in vehicles and if necessary in he air to ensure that everything runs smoothly.”

Meanwhile in Durban, the Active Citizens Movement and various religious organisations will be hosting a prayer service on Monday afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s vote.

They're calling on MPs to vote in favour of the motion saying Zuma has presided over the continued looting of the country since he took office.

The groups say MPs have the power to help strengthen and restore good governance in the country by supporting the motion.

Spokesperson Yashica Padia said: “If MPs continue to vote for the presidency of Jacob Zuma, they are endorsing the deterioration of the country’s economy and our moral standing.”
