On Sunday, December 2, 2018, some of the world's biggest superstars gathered for the 2018 edition of the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100.

American pop-star Beyoncé on Sunday led an all-star line-up including Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z, Oprah, and Usher in Johannesburg at a concert to honor the life and legacy of late South African icon Nelson Mandela.

"The circumstances surrounding the incident are being investigated", Global Citizen said in a statement.

But after the show, 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.

There were reports of a group of about 30 men using knives and guns to attack people and grab their belongings.

UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Mark Lowcock , has said that the talks are not likely to be easy or quick. The group has agreed to travel on a plane provided by Kuwait, a source familiar with the talks said.

"We find that there's a lot of communication taking place on the social media platform, but that is not being reported to us", said, Naidoo, adding that it is therefore "very hard for us to deny or even confirm that such things have happened".

"There is no need to blame South African police that there was no Uber, there was no transport and all that - that should be asked from the organisers", said police minister Bheki Cele who called on victims of crime to come forward.

It said it urged South African police "to act swiftly and efficiently". President Ramaphosa received a resounding applause after being introduced by Oprah Winfrey.
