A subdued President Jacob Zuma Thursday called for all South Africans to work together to boost the ailing economy and beat resurgent racism, as calls mount for him to step down.After taking a battering in a series of rowdy parliamentary sessions, during which he was told he was unfit to lead the nation, Zuma's reply was unusually restrained and somber.Zuma also called for solidarity in the battle against racism, which he described as "an enemy of humanity".Zuma was replying to the debate on his state of the nation speech last Thursday, when he was prevented from speaking for more than an hour by interruptions from opposition parties.
