The demonstration brought together young people from the union federation, the ANC Youth League and school pupils.

The South African Students Congress (Sasco) in Gauteng marched the premier's office to hand over a memorandum highlighting issues of youth unemployment in South Africa.

Sasco along with the Congress of South African Trade Unions and the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) called on the private sector and local government to address the matter.

Deputy president of Sasco Luyanda Tenge says while some have graduated, there is no way to move forward.

We have decided to approach both government and the private sector so we are able to converse and start about the task of employing young people.

Secondly is the issue that relates to those who are currently in in-service training. They must skill them, they must make sure that in those 18 months they get out with the skill required.

Thirdly is the issue that relates to the Z83 [form], a fourth industrial revolution is at our doorstep and it can't be the case that each and every time for one to get employment you must fill that Z83 manually.
