It all seemed staged when in early March, SABC TV crew were mugged live on TV in Johannesburg while covering the arrival of Zambian president to South Africa.
The reporter kept mumbling that he is being mugged but instead of getting helped, instead got cut off and news from the main station continued.
The thieves robbed the crew, then ransacked their van where they took phones, a bag containing equipments, and someone’s credit card.
According to South African media, the men have now been arrested.
They were eventually tracked down and arrested after they tried to sell the phones.
