Johannesburg - Police found no explosive device at the Mall of Africa after the shopping centre's management received a bomb threat earlier, a spokesman said on Wednesday.
"Police searched and nothing was found and it was handed to the management," said police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.
The mall's management confirmed in a statement that trading had resumed at the shopping complex.
Shoppers were evacuated from the Mall of Africa, one of South Africa's largest shopping complexes, on Wednesday as police searched for a bomb after receiving a threat.
The mall, located between Johannesburg and Pretoria, houses about 300 shops, including global brands such as Inditex’s Zara, Hennes & Mauritz (H&M), Cotton On, Starbucks and Woolworths.
