R1 billion

Eyewitness News reporter Lennox Wasara weighs in on the Cosas-aligned march in a bid to help poor learners.

A large group of school pupils aligned with student movement Cosas have on Friday marched to the JSE in Sandton calling on listed companies to make a contribution towards learning.

Sandton traffic came to a standstill as the large group of students made their way through Sandton.

John Perlman chats to Eyewitness News reporter Lennox Wasara to give an update on the march.

The students say they want R1 billion in support for pupils in school. They are waiting for the CEO of the JSE to receive a memorandum.
