Section 27 and Zwelinzima Vavi's new trade union SAFTU is also at the gathering.

Congress of the People (Cope) leader Mosiuoa Lekota says the law of the country states that you can only occupy the position of president if you respect the country's constitution.

He adds that the ANC must step aside if it doesn't want to remove President Jacob Zuma.

"The people of the country has a right to say, please give way. If they think that a president doesn't respect the constitution they can ask him to leave," Lekota says.

He adds that they will be marching to the Union Buildings on Friday and that South Africans must come out of the closet and act against President Zuma.

Lekota says they are still waiting for the Speaker of the National Assembly, Baleka Mbete to indicate when the motion of no confidence in President Zuma will take place.

Zwelinzima Vavi has lashed out at the South African Revenue Service (SARS), saying that only "captured individuals" remain within the ranks of the service.

"The jobs that are supposed to be created, will not be created. There will be no money left to support small, medium and micro enterprises."
