Johannesburg – The National Union of Metalworkers of SA’s (Numsa’s) promised to hit private and public sectors where it “hurts the most” when they embark on their much anticipated march on Wednesday.

Numsa promised to hold the bull by its horns by marching against corruption and job losses.

 Speaking to reporters at the Numsa head office in Newtown, Johannesburg on Tuesday Karl Cloete said, "South Africa is in the vicious grip of worsening mass unemployment, retrenchments, deepening inequality and poverty."

Cloete added that working class communities have become a "war zones of violent crime," and the march promises to be one of a kind.

He also said they are expecting thousands of workers to swamp the streets of Johannesburg. 

Cloete said they will be demanding the strengthening of anti-corruption laws such as domestic legislation and they will also demand the strengthening of the offices of the public protector and the office of the Auditor general among other things.  

The union also wants an investigation into possible lifestyle audits and how these will help fight corruption. 

Workers are expected to start at Mary Fitzgerald square in Newtown; where they will march to Beyers Naude square. They will then proceed to the Chambers of mine to deliver the memorandum.
