Protestors are chanting outside the CTICC in Cape Town, calling for a state of emergency to be declared in South Africa.

A growing group of demonstrators outside the doors of the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is demanding to see President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The group is protesting outside the CTICC, where the World Economic Forum (WEF) Africa 2019 event is currently underway.

Citizens want more decisive action from the government amid ongoing violence perpetrated against women and children.

Scores of demonstrators who had earlier staged a picket outside Parliament have joined forces with other protesters outside the CTICC.

EWN reporter Kevin Brandt says the demonstrators are calling for a state of emergency to be declared in South Africa.
