The Department of
Communications has strongly condemned the mugging of three SABC journalists

hospital outside Johannesburg when they were mugged.

protect the rights of citizens as enshrined in the constitution and will
continue his effort in reducing to ensure that all people who live in South
Africa are safe and feel safe.
“Minister Muthambi encourages citizens
to work closely with law enforcement agencies to reduce crime levels in our
communities” Hollow added.
