Ocean View community leader Sharon Daniels was among the crowd.

She says they’ve lost faith in Zuma and the South African leadership.

“We should call for an end to corruption and we appeal to the leaders to vote with compassion and conscience.”

Salt River resident Faghmiedah Lee agrees.

“We do not believe in our leader, I am ashamed to say that I voted for people who sold us out and are still selling us out.”

These Capetonians have called on Parliament to do what they say, is the right thing by voting in favour of a motion of no confidence in Zuma.
