Thousands are expected to attend the People’s March against xenophobia in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Various organisations were to march through the Joburg CBD to protest against the xenophobic violence.
The march was due to start at Pieter Roos Park in Hillbrow at 1pm and end at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown.
Joburg metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said the march would not result in any road closures.
Former Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi said it was important for everyone to show their condemnation of the attacks.
