A large crowd gathered in Phakamisa in the Eastern Cape on Monday ahead of a march by the ANC Youth League for “economic freedom”.

“By 10am, there were about 5 000 people there,” the league's regional chairman Ayanda Matiti said.

“We are still waiting for more members to arrive from the other regions.”

The march was expected to get underway at 1pm.

“It will take three hours and we will hand over a memorandum at the premier's office,” he said.

Their demands would be made public after handing the document over. – Sapa
