WATCH: Ramaphosa engages with protesters

It's the second day of the World Economic Forum on Africa. The last two decades have witnessed Africa making great progress in improving economic and social conditions.

CAPE TOWN - President Cyril Ramaphosa has cut short his participation at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa to address protesters at Parliament.

Ramaphosa is currently leading South Africa's delegation, accompanied by his deputy, David Mabuza, Finance Minister Tito Mboweni, Trade and Industry Minister Ebrahim Patel, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize, and Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.

More than a thousand regional and global leaders from politics, business, civil society and academia will discuss Africa's way forward.

Away from the economics, protesters tried to storm the Cape Town International Convention Centre. 

They called for more action from government on gender-based violence.
