Rigger Who Died At Joburg’s Global Citizen Festival Identified As Siyabonga Ngodze

File Only one incident has been reported to police after concertgoers were robbed and assaulted near the FNB stadium

Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Pharrell Williams, Trevor Noah, Usher and other worldwide stars gathered in Johannesburg on Sunday for a charity concert honouring Nelson Mandela a century after he was born.

While the majority got home safely afterwards, others were targeted by thieves as they left the stadium. Thousands of music fans, many of whom had received free tickets to reward their activism and campaigning work, flocked to the stadium hours before the concert began. It also celebrated what would've been the former South African President, Nelson Mandela's, 100th birthday.

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.

Take for example the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday night. "We as stadium management were not involved in the safety and security of the event as we would normally have been as we did with the Guns N' Roses concert last week Thursday", Grobbelaar said.

It said it was "saddened to hear the challenges people had while leaving the venue".

The organisers of the Global Citizen Festival have insisted that the safety of guests was "always of paramount importance" after scores of people were attacked outside the stadium on Sunday, December 2.

Police arrested one suspect in the theft of a cell phone, police Brig.

World Bank President Jim Kim who was among the political and business leaders attending the event announced a $1billion investment in health and education across Africa in 2019.

Hosts of the Global Citizen Festival had the crowds' attention from the beginning to the end highlighting the spirit of Madiba in ending poverty and showing South Africa's potential in creating a better future for all.
