Interfaith council condemns anti-Zuma marches as coup
Bishop Bheki Ngcobo has questioned why there is such a rush to remove President Zuma from office when his term is expected to end soon.
DURBAN - The National Interfaith Council of South Africa, together with traditional leaders in KwaZulu-Natal, have described marches against President Jacob Zuma as a coup orchestrated by individuals who want to run the country through the backdoor.
The organizations will on Monday hold a prayer for Zuma ahead of Tuesday’s motion of no confidence vote in Parliament.
They say there’s an attempt by opposition parties to impose an agenda on the millions of South Africans who democratically elected Zuma and the African National Congress (ANC) in office.
