Beyoncé headlined Mandela concert. But violent muggers stole the show

While the majority got home safely afterwards, others were targeted by thieves as they left the stadium.

The festival, part of Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday celebrations, was attended by 200 000 engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030. It says many people won tickets to Sunday's concert through charity work and petition-signing. This year it was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of politician and prominent human rights activist Nelson Mandela.

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

Fellow concert-goer Ano Shonhiwa, 23, told AFP "there was so much chaos when the concert ended and people wanted to leave".

Kingsbury to join USC
Kingsbury spurned multiple NFL organizations to join a USC team in dire need of innovation on the offensive side of the football. Kingsbury is still universally regarded as one of football's brightest minds, and his offenses at Texas Tech reflected that.

"People's bags are getting snatched, people are losing their phones, people are fighting in the midst of us looking for an Uber", a reveller said in a video posted on YouTube. "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. "Some guys were walking around with knives and screwdrivers, threatening people", he said. Cele said police had one case number for a stolen cellphone, but said that no other cases had been opened.

"We have learnt that only one incident was formally reported, which goes in stark contrast to the many reports surfacing all over media", Sun said.

Mandela, who was imprisoned for decades under South Africa's apartheid regime, led the country's transformation into a multi-racial democracy and was elected its first president. Some World Cup soccer matches were successfully held there when South Africa hosted the tournament in 2010.

In 2013, thieves stole cash takings at the stadium after a Justin Bieber concert.
