Cape Town - Police have arrested protesters who were gathered outside the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) where the World Economic Forum on Africa is taking place.
The protesters took to the streets over the abuse and violence directed at women and children which has made headlines in recent weeks.
Police also used stun grenades and water cannons to disperse the crowd.
The crowd, made up of mainly young people from various civil community organisations and students from universities and schools across the city, gathered outside the CTICC, chanting struggle songs and holding posters on which was written "enough is enough" and "stop killing women and children".
The protesters said they were not willing to listen to any official and demanded that President Cyril Ramaphosa come out of the event to address them on how he is planning to stop the scourge of abuse directed at women and children in the country.
