Hundreds of students rally in Johannesburg as lack of basic resources in schools is deepening inequality in education.

    Hundreds of South African students have marched in Johannesburg demanding the government provide basic resources to schools.

    They want all South Africa's schools to have water, electricity, textbooks and libraries
