"The 100 Men March seeks to highlight the negative impact of violence against women and children on South African society," acting director-general of the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) Phumla Williams said.

"Marshals in clearly marked regalia will assist in ensuring the smooth movement of participants through the city," she said.

"Metro police from the City of Tshwane will close certain roads at certain times to ensure that the marchers move speedily through the city."

The march began at Kgosi Mampuru Street and is set to end at the Southern Lawns of the Union Buildings.
