WATCH: Lively May Day gathering in Mamelodi

01 May, 12:04 PM

Watch as African National Congress (ANC) supporters gather for a special Workers' Day program on Sunday.

The event, officially held by the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), was well-attended by ANC supporters.

News24's reporter Karabo Ngoepe filed video of workers gearing up for President Jacob Zuma's address.

Watch above.

Several Cosatu rallies were scheduled around South Africa, on a day dedicated to workers worldwide.

Politically speaking, workers' union Cosatu is a key member of the tripartite alliance.

Labour is under pressure with tough times, drought and sluggish growth facing the South African economy.

Former Cosatu leader Zwelinzima Vavi, once a popular figure for many workers in the labour sector, is planning on starting his own group though it is not yet clear what form the organisation will take.

He was due to speak to workers in a 20,000-seat stadium in Tembisa  on Sunday.
