An online petition on the Change.org website titled “Zuma needs to step down – Government in SA needs to change before it’s too late” has received 40,000 votes in a day.
The petition was started by Brent Lindeque from Johannesburg, who addressed the petition to Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.
Lindeque said Zuma must lead or step down. “And unfortunately Jacob Zuma cannot lead. His continuous actions and decisions are ruining South Africa,” he said.
“Our unemployment has never been higher. Crime and corruption have become a standard. Government are pillaging our taxes and our economy is at a tipping point.”
Lindeque’s petition states that we need change. “Hopefully a petition can showcase how many people want change and hopefully together we can create that change.”
