The newly formed movement which comprises of opposition political parties, as well as members of the religious fraternity, student's groups, civil society and academia was initiated by opposition political parties this week.

"He must go now". "When citizens get exhausted, rogue leaders do not get exhausted", he said. "We'll have to make sure the ANC is banished in 2019". "We want to stop him, because he can still do more damage".

He said that the group called for a national convention where all political parties and interest groups could be represented.

"Our beloved country, South Africa, has been plunged into a national crisis never seen since before 1994".

"Some parties said, "Well, we will encourage our people to participate, but we are exhausted from the march we had last week in terms of resources", Holomisa said. "It looks like the struggle has been hijacked by some corrupt elements".

Leader Mmusi Maimane said one person can not hold all the power over 55 million South Africans.

Nelson Mandela's former personal assistant Zelda Le Grange said the movement was a united coalition and had nothing to do with party politics. That's why we say we will support any other similar movement, no matter the size.

"If we get tired‚ Jacob Zuma will destroy this country". This means that the cost of living for ordinary South Africans will become more unbearable.

"You don't have to belong to any political party or wear a T-shirt or whatever to be there". They say enough is enough!

La Grange said it was hard to say what Mandela would have said or felt about her taking part in the organisation.

"In principle, Aunt Leah and I are in support of a united coalition calling on all South Africans to join the event on April 27", Tutu said.

"At the end of the day, it is the working people of this country that will suffer".

The event Tutu is referring to is a gathering next week at Freedom Park, Pretoria.

Speaking at the movement's launch in Soweto-Johannesburg, Prince Mashele said it would organize large-scale protests outside parliament later this month when lawmakers debate a vote of no confidence against Zuma.
