Washington D.C. [USA], Dec 03 (ANI): Leading an all-star line up, American singer Beyonce honoured the life and legacy of former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela at the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday (local time).

But muggings tarnished the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 event, which campaigns for girls' education and an end to extreme poverty.

To honor the memory of a fighter for human rights, who is 27 years spent in prison for his position, brought thousands of citizens of different countries of the world, including Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Beyonce, Jay-Z and other famous people.

Richard Branson, also via a recorded video link, announced a $105 million commitment from donors including UK Aid, Virgin Unite and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation towards ending trachoma, a disease that causes blindness. Many more pledges were made during the year and announced at the festival. South African rapper Cassper Nyovest shined with collaborations with United Kingdom artists Chris Martin and Stormzy.

The well known "kokomaster" delivered a proper show with songs like "Oliver Twist", "Fall in Love" and 'Emergency.' He also performed with the Mzazi Youth Choir.

Nelson Mandela was an incredibly kind and honest man.

The model was one of the guest speakers who took to the stage in between performances at the FNB Stadium. I have received confirmation that JMPD had arrested seven suspects at the Global Citizen Festival for amongst others, common robbery and assault of a police officer. "Some guys were walking around with knives and screwdrivers, threatening people", he said.

He called on more victims to report the crimes they'd fallen victim to to the SAPS, which earlier today said only one crime was reported.
