DURBAN – Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) president Sdumo Dlamini says Wednesday’s nationwide marches are not a proxy battle ahead of the December elective conference but about giving the voiceless a platform to stand against corruption.

Dlamini is leading the KwaZulu-Natal leg of demonstrations against state capture.

There are now hundreds of marchers here at King Dinizulu Park but Cosatu expects the thousands.

Dlamini is confident that today’s nationwide mass action will be a success.

“We’re happy from the reports we’re receiving throughout the country and here, we’re satisfied. We’re going to have a very successful march throughout the country.”

It’s not clear when we will start moving through the Durban CBD but hundreds more are expected to join.
