Skirmishes broke out in Johannesburg as more than 60,000 people marched in South African cities Friday in largely peaceful protests to demand President Jacob Zuma quit after a Cabinet reshuffle triggered the latest crisis of his presidency.Zuma's sacking of Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan in the reshuffle last Thursday has outraged allies and opponents alike, undermined his authority and caused rifts in the ruling African National Congress, which has governed South Africa since the end of white-minority rule in 1994 .The ANC Wednesday rejected calls for Zuma to quit, and analysts doubted marches would shake the president.
