Four people have been arrested in connection with the robbery involving South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) journalist, Vuyo Mvoko, at the Milpark Hospital earlier this week.

Armed men stole cellphones and a laptop while being filmed shortly before the 7pm news.

The police’s Theko Pharasi said they were still looking for another suspect.

“The people arrested are four male persons. Two of them are the ones who were actively participating in the robbery itself and two were buying stolen goods are the receivers.”

The SABC was preparing to do a live crossing from outside the Milpark Hospital where the President of Zambia had been hospitalised, when the men approached him just as Mvoko was about to go on air.

Dramatic footage went viral of the SABC contributing editor being mugged in full view of the cameras.

In the footage, the culprits appear oblivious to the fact that they were being filmed despite standing directly in the crew’s spotlight.

In the video, Mvoko can be heard saying “we’re being mugged”.
