Sound problems delay rally
Johannesburg - Speakers at Cosatu's May Day rally in Cape Town's Athlone Stadium were on Sunday forced to wait helplessly as the organisers tried to fix a sound system problem.
Just over 1 000 people in the 40 000-seater stadium sang as they waited for the main programme to begin.
ANC mayoral candidate for Cape Town Tony Ehrenreich asked the crowd to bear with them and continue singing. ANC president Jacob Zuma was expected to address the crowd later on Sunday.
The scorching heat forced journalists sitting on the grass in front of the podium to move to a shadier spot.
