JOHANNESBURG – The two men convicted of robbing an South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) news crew at gunpoint during a live broadcast outside Milpark Hospital have been sentenced to 15 years each in prison.

SABC journalist Vuyo Mvoko was preparing to do a live crossing last year when the pair approached him and his crew and robbed them live on air.
