TV News Crew Robbed on Camera in Johannesburg

(Daily Mail) – The robbery of a South African news team has sent shock waves through the country after the brazen muggers were filmed on the crew’s camera stealing their equipment at gunpoint.

Vuyo Mvoko, a contributing editor for SABC News, was preparing for a 7pm live report outside Johannesburg’s Milpark Hospital when the incident occurred.

Footage of the robbery shows him standing under lights and in front of the camera, while two men can be seen walking past in the background.

At first he ignores them, but when they double back claiming to have a gun, Mr Mvoko’s live cross is disrupted.

The men can then be seen demanding Mr Mvoko’s mobile phone before also taking a collection of the crew’s possessions and their work laptop.
