Beyoncé among stars at Johannesburg concert to honour Mandela

Beyoncé and Jay-Z What you missed when the cameras stopped rolling

Most people had a good time and got home safely, but the night turned ugly for some when they were accosted by thugs as they left the stadium.

Concert organisers had issued restrictions that barred videos and photos during Beyonce's and Jay Z's performances.

She said the muggers were even pulling knives and guns on the defenceless revellers.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Vish Naidoo, speaking to the public broadcaster SABC from Port Elizabeth, said that police had recorded one incident of mugging after the concert, and that the police will not be seeking CCTV footage from the petrol station as there have been no criminal cases reported except for one.

"I heard that several people were mugged while they were waiting for transport or to call a cab", he said.

NHL Board of Governors Approve Seattle Expansion Team
The NHL will add a 32nd franchise in Seattle , the league announced Tuesday after a unanimous vote by the board of governors. Seattle can not buy out players chosen in the Expansion Draft earlier than the summer following its first season.


"The safety of our guests is always of paramount importance to us and we understand" the hurt and anger of those accosted by criminals, Global Citizen, an worldwide advocacy group, said on Twitter.

Stadium Management South Africa (SMSA) says all those involved in the execution of the Global Citizen Festival failed in their mandate to provide safety.

Global Citizen and another group backing the concert, the House of Mandela, urged South African police "to act swiftly and efficiently".

"The fact that we arrested a suspect immediately after the robbery took place highlights the presence of police at Sasol garage", Naidoo said.

World leaders previously gathered at the stadium in 2013 for a memorial after the death of Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who was also South Africa's first black president.
