Johannesburg - The DA's march over "real jobs" in Johannesburg was stopped around noon on Wednesday as police believed it was too dangerous to continue.

Supporters were told to stop at the corner of Rissik and Marshall streets over concerns that there may be trouble ahead.

A police officer told DA supporters the march had ended as it was "too dangerous".

DA leader Helen Zille was preparing to address her supporters.

Earlier, police threw stun grenades at people dressed in ANC gear, as they ran towards DA marchers on Rissik Street.

A Sapa reporter said some people wearing ANC colours threw bricks at the police as this happened.
