@JoburgMPD where were you last night AFTER the #GlobalCitizenFestivalSA when people were being mugged & harassed by thugs?? You were everywhere BEFORE the show to ensure no one without access got in – but AFTER?? #Sasol

Some detailed how Uber drivers insisted on helping them, because they wanted long distance trips to get more money.
The #Uber drivers were canceling trips upon request when they realized they’re short distance trips. Our car was parked at Gold Reef City, and the uber drivers canceled our trip, he said he wants long distance trips (Fourways, Randburg, etc). A taxify driver assisted us. #Sasol
