A South African journalist, about to go live on SABC from Johannesburg was mugged, with the whole thing caught on tape.

In disgraceful scenes, the journalist had his iPhone and laptop stolen by two men who harrassed him whilst the tape was rolling.

The journalist, Vuyo Mvoko, said; "We're being mugged", clearly an audible indication to his newsroom colleagues.

Mvoka later said that one of the men was carrying a gun.

This is clearly a very dispicable scene, and no journalist should have to go through what Mr. Mvoko did. I personally condemn these actions and the South African authorities should take a very tough stance in regards to the matter.
