Mbalula says violence will not be tolerated at National Day of Action march

ANC to celebrate Zuma's birthday in Kliptown

And, DA demands Ekurhuleni mayor disciplined for warning to whites


Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula yesterday said violence would not be tolerated during today's National Day of Action.

Thousands of people, including members of opposition parties, civil organisations and others, are expected to march from Church Square in Pretoria to the Union Buildings.

South Africans had been protesting for President Jacob Zuma to resign following his dramatic Cabinet reshuffle which saw the axing of former finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas and the country being downgraded to junk status.


The ANC is set to to celebrate President Jacob Zuma's 75th birthday at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown today.

This as opposition parties plan to march to the Union Buildings, calling for Zuma to resign.

Zuma shares his birthday with former finance minister Pravin Gorhan, who turns 58.


The DA yesterday referred Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina to the metro's ethics committee after he warned "white people" and Save South Africa that things might get "very very rough".

He asked Save SA not to "divide our nation", in his speech at the Chris Hani memorial lecture on Monday.

DA Ekurhuleni leader Ghaleb Cachalia argued that Masina's statement violated the Constitution.
