7 arrested by JMPD at Global Citizen Festival, says City

A spate of muggings marred a charity concert at which Beyonce, Jay-Z and other stars performed in honour of Nelson Mandela.

South African police on Monday dismissed allegations of lax safety and security outside the FNB Stadium after the Global Citizen Festival, saying that it was successful in combating crime and that those who allegedly fell victim to robberies should open criminal cases.

Officials have called on those who experienced incidents of crime to come forward with more information. It says many people won tickets to Sunday's concert through charity work and petition-signing.

All the while, Namhla said, South African Police Service (SAPS) was nowhere to be found.

She said menacing men made eye contact with some concert-goers, as though to say, '"You could be next,"' and that there were no police in sight. "We do not go by what is posted on social media because the only time something is factual is if we get an affidavit", Naidoo said.

He said there was a stampede when someone pulled out a gun.
