Divided or united?

I hope somebody out there can help me.

Last Friday, thousands of people united to march to have President Zuma removed from office. But he is still in office and said this march was clearly a racist attack.

Now that you have marched, what now? I am not against what the community did and if I could have, I would probably have joined in, but what now? Did it help at all?

I attended the ANC’s Summary of Economic Transformation Discussion Document for Police Conference on Sunday at Luthuli House. I drove around in circles for half an hour, trying to find the venue, and then got a lecture from the security guard about driving safely in Joburg, all while making an effort to attend a meeting where the ANC supported and united with their leader and president.

I understand that if Zuma resigns, he will have to face the 783 charges laid against him and that is why he is adamant to remain Number One.

I think it’s a case of being between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Now, I need some honest (and you can remain anonymous) did you regard the day as a day off or did you really march with the masses?

It was beautiful to see so many races joining hands and uniting on common ground. However, the headline in a daily newspaper read: ‘A country divided’. I think this was actually a country united.

Can someone please tell me what is going to happen now? After the march?

Until next week, let’s continue to remain united. Take care of one another.
