“The matter is expected to be heard tomorrow (Wednesday),” said Tshwane metro spokesperson Superintendent Isaac Mahamaba.

SaveSA however, on Tuesday said the march would take place.

SaveSA coordinator David Lydall said South Africans needed to take a stand against President Jacob Zuma.

“We want Zuma’s reign to come to an end, we will march from the Church Square to the Union Buildings,” he said.

He said some of the people have already started camping out at the square in anticipation of Friday’s march.

“People are having sleepovers here, we are tired of the corruption. We are currently mobilising churches and unions to join us.”

Italian businessman Alfredo Lorenzo, who has been living in South Africa for the past 10 years, said he also wanted Zuma to step down.

“The man makes absurd decisions which have an impact on us business people,” said Lorenzo.

“The rand is where it is today because he can’t lead, let alone decide. The country’s future is dark.”

Trade unionist Zwelinzima Vavi said it was important for the country to organise itself and put pressure on the ANC to recall its leader, Jacob Zuma.
