The Beyonce led line-up including Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z and Usher for the climax of a year of events celebrating the centennial of Mandela’s birth in 1918, and to raise money for charity.
Concert-goer and witness Catherine Constantinides, director of the Miss Earth SA programme, said “it was more than mugging and taking phones”.
“You prayed with your life not to be stabbed, punched or brutally attacked, all of which I witnessed,” she wrote on Twitter account.
“there was so much chaos when the concert ended and people wanted to leave”.
“I heard that several people were mugged while they were waiting for transport or to call a cab,” he said.
Global Citizen, which organised the event, said in a statement that “after such an inspiring evening, we are saddened to hear the challenges people had while leaving the venue”.
“We have been working to support people getting home safely,” it said.
