Music fans who attended the Global Citizen Festival showpiece at the FNB Stadium on Sunday have detailed horrific experiences.
After the show ended fans had horrific experiences from extreme traffic congestion, lack of public transport and robberies occurring inside and outside the stadium.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Mukundi a caller says he was robbed inside the stadium.
I was actually robbed inside the venue and not outside during the Beyoncè and JayZ set. I tried to hail the security guys but by the time they came to help me, the guys had already disappeared.— Mukundi, caller
He adds that when they arrived at the concert there was only one entry point into the venue.
We had thousands of people in a line outside and people started pushing and getting frustrated.— Mukundi, caller
Phumi, another caller, says she saw six people get robbed at the stadium.
At least six, I want to start with going into the concert, I witnessed the police threatening to hit a woman because she got out of the queue. The queues were long and I am not sure why there was one entry point.— Phumi, caller
Fast forward to the end, we are all asked to go to the designated uber zone and there was no network, systems were down.— Phumi, caller
I have never been so scared in my life, you hear a whistle once you hear a whistle, you hear a scream and then there is a bit of running.— Phumi, caller
These guys were a bit organised and they were preying on young girls and there were no cops anywhere to be seen.— Phumi, caller
