It's very clear that Save SA advances interests of those who are notorious for not engaging on pertinent socio-economic challenges facing the country.
There was a marked contrast between Save SA's symbolic tabling of a motion of no-confidence in President Jacob Zuma and his performance in Parliament.
A public "motion of no-confidence" to be symbolically tabled by comrades at Constitution Hill and oral questions in Parliament. Nasty.
