Leaders set to address the Global Citizen: Mandela 100, include South African President Cyril Ramaphosa among others.

While the Global Citizen Festival went off largely without a hitch yesterday, there have been several reports of muggings after it ended.

Trevor Noah speaks on stage during the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 at FNB Stadium on December 2, 2018 in Johannesburg, South Africa. It says many people won tickets to Sunday's concert through charity work and petition-signing.

But champions City were not to be denied and Ilkay Gundogan completed the 3-1 victory on 79 minutes. City's only shot on target by that stage was Bernardo Silva's goal.

She said the muggers were even pulling knives and guns on the defenceless revellers.

Global Citizen and another group backing the concert, the House of Mandela, urged South African police "to act swiftly and efficiently".

He pointed out the SA Police Service (a national competency not controlled by the city) was responsible for overall security arrangements, and praised the JMPD for having arrested seven suspects for "common robbery and assault of a police officer".

Pharrell Williams, Trevor Noah and Oprah Winfrey were among those headlining the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 at Johannesburg's FNB Stadium on Sunday.

Sun pointed out that world-renowned band Guns and Roses attracted almost 65 000 fans to their concert at the same stadium just three days before and the event was an overall incident-free one - except for a report of suspected domestic violence. Some World Cup soccer matches were successfully held there when South Africa hosted the tournament in 2010.
