This year, several marches are set to take Mzansi by storm. The main march is set to take place in Tshwane.

The march, which will be a 12-hour long protest, starts at 6am on Monday morning. It will end with a hand over of a memorandum.

Valerie Byliefeldt, from Limpopo's National Conservative Party, said the group will call for assistance from US president, Donald Trump. Byliefeldt said the marches hope to get an update from the US leader after his lad expropriation tweet.

She added that when the memorandum is handed over, they will ask Trump to intervene in the farm murder issue: "We are directly asking him for help. ”

Meanwhile, the NCP Limpopo leader said Cyril Ramaphosa lied about the existence of farm murders in SA.

She lambasted him after his live TV broadcast over the issue:

"He went on live television and denied farm murders exist when there have been 62 in the last year. We want to bring this to the attention of the American government.”

The South African reported that Ramaphosa recently told Bloomberg there are no farm murders. Later, Ramaphosa's office said he was referring to “white genocide”.

She then invited protesters to open up cases of hate speech against those who incite racist rhetoric. Byliefeldt referred to Julius Malema when he said white people “must be grateful” he has not called for their genocide.

Last year, several apartheid-era emblems were spotted, which sparked a social media outcry.

Byliefeldt has since said they “strongly condemn” the flag, adding the NCP does not want to associate with the flag.

She went on to stress the march was for all people: "Anyone who supports the cause is welcome to join."

But, she cautioned that the organisers will not tolerate the display of the old flag.

Although there's no official list of roads that will be affected in Pretoria, Johannesburg or Cape Town, commuters have been cautioned to expect delays.
