Bridget: "Where are all the protesters?"

Hundreds, if not thousands, of South Africans have gathered at different locations in the country.

Numerous Springs residents have responded to a question posed by the Addie, asking if residents will join in any type of protest action, who said they will be participating.

Despite this, nothing seems to be happening in Springs and all is quiet.

Captain Johannes Ramphora spokesman for the Springs police says they haven’t heard of any unrest as yet.

The question posed to the community on social media was as follows:

What will you be doing?
We want to know what our community thinks of the situation, will the community be joining any protest action tomorrow?
a) No, I’m not interested in politics.
b) Yes, we need to stand together!
c) I’ll see how I feel in the morning…

Here is what residents had to say on our social media pages:

• Brandon Moss: “Yes, I’m going.”

• Rina Greeff Roets: A

• Innocence Eye Pakkies: “Zuma stepping down means the restructuring of the cabinet, can’t we wait for the next elections? I’m not interested in this protest, hai.”

• Charmaine Swart: “B, even if I can’t attend a march, I will be wearing black and not spend any money tomorrow [today].”

• Mapule Lucia: B

• Herman Lourens: “No. Zupta isn’t the only problem. The ANC government is.”

• Sanet Ballack: “Dit kan links of regs gaan. ‘Either’ dis n tyd vir almal om te wys dat die mense nou keelvol is vir al die verkeerde dinge wat angaan in die regering of dit kan mense dalk baie kwaad maak en dan gaan die water spat.”

• Melissa du Preez: “Unfortunately, I have to be at work. I’m hoping there won’t be any violence on the roads, because the anger is not caused by innocent people, so I hope the day won’t be ruined by unnecessary violence.”
