Are Protests Against Zuma Gaining Traction Across SA? Corruption Watch Says Yes.

Since former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene was fired, there has been an increase in the public's involvement in protests, says David Lewis.

Civil society organisations last week resolved to host widespread protest action and campaigns targeted specifically at the ANC and its president, Jacob Zuma, as well as the Gupta family.

These were some of the decrees that emerged out of the Conference for the Future of South Africa on Tuesday, when more than 100 civil society institutions gathered to discuss political issues affecting the country, with particular emphasis on state capture and corruption.
