The 2015 edition of Feast of the Clowns highlights the plight of children living in the inner-city.
Themed ‘And A Child Shall Lead’ the 2015 Feast of the Clowns to highlight the plight of children living in the inner-city came to an end on Saturday.
The annual week-long festival sought to raise awareness about social issues affecting children living in the city and to encourage stakeholders to create a vibrant and healthy city for children.
It teaches children about their rights and how to exercise them as well as gives them a platform to be effect change to their communities.
This year, former Constitutional Court judge, Albie Sachs joined about 1 500 in this march from the University of Pretoria to highlight the rights of children.
Scenes from Sachs’ book The Soft Vengeance of a Freedom Fighter were shot for film.
The day ended with musicians performing at the Burgers Park
