eMalahleni - People were given yellow T-shirts as they entered the Pumas Rugby Stadium in eMalahleni for a Workers' Day rally organised by the National Council of Trade Unions.

The Nactu-branded shirts had the words “we vote for land and worker's dignity” printed on the back.

Buses were bringing people to the venue. Members of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union, dressed in green T-shirts, sang and danced with sticks held aloft as vuvuzelas droned.

Preparations of the podium, from were speakers would address the crowd, were still underway shortly before 11am. Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema was expected to be one of the speakers. - Sapa
