Durban - Traffic in Durban's city centre was brought to a standstill as thousands of National Union of Metal Workers of SA members marched for jobs.

Suspended Congress of SA Trade Unions general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi was at the front of the estimated 3000-strong march.

The march proceeded down Anton Lembede (Smith) Street, where Vavi was expected to address the marchers.

Vavi carried a placard that read “Implement the Freedom Charter”.

There were no immediate reports of any incidents, and a large police contingent escorted the marchers. - Sapa
