JOHANNESBURG – A presenter for Westside FM, a West Rand community radio station, was held at gunpoint in the early hours of Sunday morning during a robbery at the radio station.

The host had just finished his show and was playing music when five gunmen forced their way into the station’s premises, stealing all the computers.

Station chief executive Goodhope Ledwaba said the station’s security had been compromised since the looting that engulfed the country in July.

“Remember the previous looting, we put a sheet of metal on the door. They took them off because we’re still waiting for the mall to put up windows. They had taken action, they were supposed to put on the new glasses this coming week, so they went in from there.

The police are on the scene and anyone with information is asked to contact the management of the station.
