Beneficiaries of the government’s Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) marched to the headquarters of the ruling African National Congress in Johannesburg on Tuesday, demanding permanent jobs.
The protestors said they had been on a contract for 13 months with a monthly salary of R2,900.
“We are here at Luthuli House as there were promises made to us that are yet to be delivered on,” one woman said.
The group vowed not to leave the venue, insisting they would sit in front of the building until someone came to address their grievances.
