CT demonstrators march on NPA and Public Protector's offices

Civil society groups have banded together in Cape Town to raise concerns about state capture allegations and their effect on the country.

The groups marched to the NPA's office in Bree street and to the Public Protector's office in Wale street, reports EWN's Monique Mortlock.

They were also meant to march to the Sars offices, but were told by officials that they were not given notice.

The Social Justice Coalition (SJC), Equal Education and Ndifuna Ukwazi were among other community groups demonstrating today.

They say that they want someone to listen to them and say their are representing voiceless South Africans and the poor.

The march comes amid President Jacob Zuma's court bid which is underway at the Pretoria High Court to block the release of the state capture report findings.

The small group handed over a memorandum with a list of demands to each of the state institutions. (See the demands in the tweet below).

On Wednesday there will be more demonstrations nationwide, following the controversy of failed fraud charges brought against Finance Minster Pravin Gordhan.
