Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Pharrell Williams, Trevor Noah, Usher and other global stars gathered in Johannesburg on Sunday for a charity concert honouring Nelson Mandela a century after he was born.
The concert featured performances by Pharrell, Ed Sheeran, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Martin, Usher, Wizkid, plus Beyoncé and JAY-Z. Thousands of music fans, many of whom had received free tickets to reward their activism and campaigning work, flocked to the stadium hours before the concert began.
It was launched by the Motsepe Foundation to not only celebrate the centenary year of former president Nelson Mandela but also honour his legacy in the fight to end "extreme poverty".
Makhura said he has sought a detailed report from South African Police Services (SAPS) and Johannesburg Metro Police (JMPD), saying that police visibility post the festival was undeniably one of the key areas of concern as expressed by a number of people.
It said it was "saddened to hear the challenges people had while leaving the venue".

"We find that there's a lot of communication taking place on the social media platform, but that is not being reported to us", said Mr Naidoo.
World leaders gathered at the stadium for a 2013 memorial after the death of Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader and South Africa's first black president. Some World Cup soccer matches were successfully held there when South Africa hosted the tournament in 2010.
