JOHANNESBURG, April 12 South African President
Jacob Zuma said he was not stressed by calls for him to resign
and urged his supporters to ignore the criticism directed
against him, hours after more than 30,000 people marched in the
capital demanding he quit.
Zuma has faced protests following a much-criticised cabinet
reshuffle last month but the president appeared jovial at his
75th birthday celebrations, dancing and cracking jokes.
"The opposition are doing their job, don't be worried," he
told his supporters in the Zulu language. "Do not be worried by
the opposition marches."
