We were not responsible for Global Citizen security, says stadium management

Stadium Management SA (SMSA) has reiterated it was not responsible for security and safety at the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday.

This comes after an outcry following a crime spree outside the FNB Stadium in Soweto after the concert.

SMSA CEO Jacques Grobbelaar told TimesLIVE earlier that the police and Global Citizen were in charge of the event because it was high-profile and involved 58 heads of state.

Festival-goers recalled the terrifying experiences that had them fearing for their safety after the concert. Some told of being involved in violent confrontations in and around the Nasrec Sasol garage as they waited for taxis.

Many detailed their stories on Twitter, with some explaining how they were mugged at gunpoint outside the stadium, with no police in sight.

SMSA manages the FNB, Dobsonville and Rand stadiums.
