The Economic Freedom Fighters says its next step in the bid to have President Jacob Zuma removed from office is the mobilisation of society.
Speaking to reporters, EFF national chairperson Dali Mpofu said “the EFF had a strategy in place and the next goal was to engage South Africans on the streets.
The most important is on the streets, because that is where the real engagement is going to happen, right now the mobilisation of society is at a point where quite frankly if you called for people to come out in their millions in the next week or so they probably would because they have had enough of being treated like children,"
Mpofu suggested the political environment was condusive for the EFF to get the masses on their side.
The Constitutional Court found that Zuma and the National Assembly had violated the constitution by not complying with the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's findings regarding paying back some of the money spent on his Nkandla homestead for upgrades.
As one of the the primary orders of the Court, Zuma was then given 105 days to repay the fiscus for the non-security upgrades to his home.
The President subsequently apologised to South Africans, saying he had followed bad legal advise.
Members of Parliament will on Tuesday debate a motion to impeach President Jacob Zuma.
