TSHWANE – An eNCA news crew has been robbed in Mamelodi near Pretoria.
Reporter Jody Jacobs and camera person Thando Hlope were covering the latest unrest in the area.
Jacobs says two men brandishing a firearm approached them and demanded their equipment.
They took the company equipment and threatened the camera person.
In March 2015, SABC contributing editor Vuyo Mvoko was mugged outside Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg while the news organisation’s cameras were running.
The incident took place while Mvoko was preparing to do a live interview for prime time news on SABC3.
The two men accused of robbing the crew were sentenced to 15 years in prison by the Johannesburg magistrate’s court.
