When Trump became president of the United States Americans in their droves took to the streets in protest.  Little did we in South Africa know that we too will have a similar day where in our droves we will take to the streets demanding that our president resigns. Following an unsuspected cabinet reshuffle which had the highly effective minister of finance and his deputy replaced by two people each with no financial experience and each with somewhat checkered pasts and the down grading to junk status of South Africa by the ratings agency Standard and Poor South Africans mobilised.  On Friday 7 April demonstrations demanding the resignation of the president were held in all cities and major towns. We went to one such venue close to us to join in the protest. Below some photos I took at the event.

Like the Americans still have Trump we still have Zuma.

Nevertheless have a great Sunday.
