ANCYL March Through Cape Town CBD

This is happening right now. Hundreds of ANC Youth League (ANCYL) members have taken to the streets after a delay which the league said was due to transport issues. They're marching to the Western Cape Legislature in protest of poor service delivery, the government’s proposed youth wage subsidy and the possible closure of 27 schools in the province.

Western Cape Premier, Helen Zille, said she would not receive their memorandum of grievances until the league withdrew its threat to make the province's capital city ungovernable. A reasonable request in my opinion. There is a heavy police presence to ensure public safety during the march.

Protesters will move from Keizergracht Street along Darling Street, left into Adderley Street, and then to the provincial buildings in Wale Street.

Anyway, back to work!
