Protesters are currently in Standerton in Mpumalanga, where they’re collecting grievances along the way.

Some of the issues raised include rising unemployment and poverty.

They’ll also go past Leuwkop Prison, where student Khanya Cekeshe is serving a five-year sentence for burning a police van, during Fees Must Fall demonstrations.
