The party took to Johannesburg streets on Wednesday in a gathering dubbed the 'Jobs March'. 

A sea of blue moved through the downtown city streets. Some carried placards highlighting the dire need for employment in the country. 

The DA says President Jacob Zuma must shoulder the blame for the unemployment crisis in the country. 

The main opposition promised to turn things around, especially in Johannesburg. 

DA leaders Mmusi Maimane said they are already showing that they can govern better than anyone else in areas they govern.

"We have been able to deliver the requisite jobs, where unemployment is the lowest where we govern," he said.

Maimane said, however, it is not enough.

"We want to bring it here...Johannesburg must be the hub of the economy in South Africa. That is why we wanted Herman Mashaba to come and speak to the South Africans and say here is a plan to deliver jobs here," he said.
