“We’re being mugged,” Vuyo Mvoko says before going on-air
South African journalist Vuyo Mvoko was about to do a routine live shot from Johannesburg for his station SABC Tuesday night when two men mugged him.
He is standing in front of his camera about to go on-air when a man in a blue shirt approaches, trying to pick his pocket.
A second man in a red shirt and hat appears as well, as you hear off-camera the screaming of a woman and the muggers saying “give me.”
It looks like they got away with something before Mvoka said, “we’re being mugged.”
The journalist later appeared on-set to explain his ordeal.
Mvoka said the men—one carrying a gun—were looking to take his phone. They got away with the phone (two or three), as well as their laptop.
