Dressed in red EFF T-shirts and caps, a few hundred people were milling around, singing and whistling, waiting for the arrival of their leader Julius Malema.

One man carried a big white placard with the words: "SA: Gupta Farm. JZ: Cowboy. Police: Sheep Dog. People: Live Stock."

Others carried red posters saying, "Down with economic apartheid, down!", "Capitalism sucks!" and "0% Fee increase at Universities".

Earlier, Malema said he was confident that at least 5 000 people will take part in the march from Mary Fitzgerald Square, the SA Reserve Bank, Chamber of Mines and to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in Sandton.
