  • Beyoncé among stars at Johannesburg concert to honour Mandela

Beyonce with her husband delighted the audience by performing their hits, Pharrell Williams sang for festival visitors, and Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell inspired the audience with their speeches.

Beyoncé will lead an all-star line-up that includes Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z and Usher in Johannesburg on Sunday when she performs at a concert to honor the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela.

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

Festival-goers have told of brazen robberies, traffic chaos and lack of public transport outside the concert venue and at the nearby Sasol garage in Nasrec where the stadium is located.

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

One man has been arrested in connection with incidents following the event, added Cele who spoke to journalists at an event in the southern city of Port Elizabeth.

"It was so chaotic", said Cydwell Masango who was working a late shift as a pump attendant at the Sasol garage in Ormonde, where the attacks took place.

She said the muggers were even pulling knives and guns on the defenceless revellers. In a statement to TimesLIVE, national police spokesperson Vish Naidoo said police did not leave their posts until hours after the show ended.

The CEO of Stadium Management Jacques Grobbelaar said that their role was restricted to providing certain services and that the ultimate responsibility for safety and security in and around the stadium lay with the SAPS and the Johannesburg Metro Police Department.
