“Entertainment must remain entertainment. No one has a right to victimise peace loving citizens,” said Brigadier Lindela Mashigo. Angry Zimbabweans who wanted free entry into the show hurled missiles at the doors and a number of fans were seriously injured when violence broke out.

The show had to be stopped for about 30 minutes. Show organiser, Siphiwe Sibiya of show-offs Promotions reprimanded revellers for misbehaving.

“The venue owners assured us that they had informed the police who were supposed to maintain a presence but that did not happen,” said Sibiya.

She accused show goers of waiting until the show started before jostling to get into the venue.
