Tembisa - Hundreds of DA supporters marched in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, on Sunday demanding jobs.

Several police vehicles escorted the protestes led by Democratic Alliance Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane.

The procession went along several streets with the protestes waving blue placards saying: “Together for change” and “Together for jobs”.

Maimane is set to address the crowd later on Sunday.

In a statement, the DA said leadership of several community organisations based in the east of Gauteng would publicly withdraw their support from the African National Congress and endorse Maimane for premier.
