Tweeps share chaotic scenes of muggings after Global Citizen Festival

Global Citizen festival

With an aim to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030, the Global Citizen initiative has staged events in other world cities including London, Brussels, and NY. It says many people won tickets to Sunday's concert through charity work and petition-signing.

Mandela was jailed under South Africa's apartheid regime for 27 years.

"The criminals were basically having a field day", said Zikhona Tshona, a reporter for the South African news organization eNCA. "It's nice to get this obvious reminder of Mandela's values", said concert-goer Ano Shonhiwa, 23, as he made his way into 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. "Some guys were walking around with knives and screwdrivers, threatening people", he said.

Authorities are urging victims of crime following the Global Citizen festival to come forward to ensure successful prosecution.

Police arrested one suspect after a mobile phone was stolen, Brigadier Vish Naidoo said.

"We find that there's a lot of communication taking place on the social media platform, but that is not being reported to us", said, Naidoo, adding that it is therefore "very hard for us to deny or even confirm that such things have happened".

This is the outfit Beyoncè adorned for the last part of her performance, where in the end, she and her stood side-by-side to bid farewell to South Africa.

The event which is sub-themed, "Mandela 100" marks what would have been the 100th birthday of former South African President and activist, Nelson Mandela who died, December 5, 2013, at the age of 95.
