Politics

Johannesburg - Thousands of excited Democratic Alliance supporters in blue gathered at the Westgate transport hub in the Johannesburg CBD ahead of a march for "real" jobs on Wednesday.

Buses ferrying marchers continued to drop off members who were singing, dancing, blowing whistles and vuvuzelas and clapping.

Marshals wearing black and green reflector vests manned the entrance to a cordoned off area where marchers had gathered. They checked people's bags as they entered the meeting area.

A police helicopter flew overhead and police officers lined the surrounding streets - some on horseback. Many people wore hats or stood under umbrellas to shade themselves from the morning sun. - Sapa
