Smaller numbers expected to attend #OccupyLuthuliHouse

The #OccupyLuthuliHouse movement has called on the general public to halt from participating in the planed protest to the African National Congress head quarters.

Leader of the movement and organiser, Gugu ndima said they have decide to scale down the number of protestors, citing security concerns and the safety of its members.

The movement is calling for the resignation of both ANC president Jacob Zuma and his National Executive Committee (NEC).

It has been reported that Ndima received threats and thus the decision to reduce the number of people attending.

Over two thousand protestors were expected to attend the protest but Ndima has urged the general public not to participate in the protest.

On the other hand the ANC has deployed the South African Police Service (SAPS), Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD), Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans and Presidential guards to guard the precinct.

On Sunday it was reported that a personnel in an unmarked minibus fitted the Luthuli House precinct with security apparatus, including CCTV cameras.

The cameras were part of the ANC’s attempt to stop members – who are demanding that President Jacob Zuma step down – from trying to storm the offices.

The campaign is also led by former Wits University student representative council (SRC) president Mcebo Dlamini, Joburg ANC member Sasa Manganye, and former ANC Youth League national executive committee members Ronald Lamola and Ntibi Modise, among others.

The movement is set to deliver its memorandum and in their memorandum they require the following:
