Nalumango joined CapeTalk presenter Kieno Kammies, who is broadcasting live from outside the gates of Parliament.

The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers' Union (Sactwu) is also protesting in solidarity with other demonstrators.

Sactwu Western Cape provincial secretary Sheila van Rensburg says the government needs to step up and protect women in South Africa.

We need to take stand against the ongoing attack on women and children in our country. We are saying enough is enough.

Our mothers are unable to perform their jobs because they are worried about our children out there.
