News Reporter Mugged While on Camera


SABC News contributing editor Vuyo Mvoko was covering the arrival of Zambian President Edgar Lungu at a hospital in South Africa when the crime occurred.

In the video, posted by SABC on Youtube, Mvoko can be seen with microphone in hand calmly waiting for the anchor in the studio to introduce his live segment. Several men can be seen walking behind him. The men then stop suddenly and turn toward the news crew.

On the video Mvoko seems to ignore the men as they walk in front of his camera at first and then he realizes what is happening.

One of the men touches Mvoko and he quickly moves off camera as a short scuffle can be heard.
