PSL promise justice to perpetrators of fan violence

A group of thugs beat a steward with chairs and left him motionless on the pitch on Saturday

A match on Saturday night between Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars concluded with a serious pitch invasion resulting in injuries and damages, said Vusi Mazibuko, General Manager of Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Angry Chiefs supporters stormed the pitch after the final whistle as their side lost 2-0 on the night that also saw Amakosi coach Steve Komphela step down as head coach.

The PSL slammed those involved in the widely-condemned incident, in which 16 people, including a security guard, were injured, and called for those responsible to be held accountable.

South Africa successfully hosted the World Cup, the first in Africa, with the Moses Mabhida Stadium one of the stadiums built for the 2010 tournament.

In a video, fans could be seen kicking and beating the guard with chairs and other unidentified objects.

One fan kicked him in the upper chest, a kick that collapsed her to the ground.

That probably won't be the case in the first round this year despite the fact he floated the idea last week. Philadelphia has no pick in round two or three, and the Eagles don't pick till the end of round four.

Earlier reports said a female security guard was killed during the riot.

They also trashed TV cameras, audio equipment and advertising boards and burnt seats before being dispersed by police firing tear gas and stun grenades.

Union spokesperson Sizwe Pamla said: "Our position as Cosatu is that we want law enforcement agencies to make an example of those people".

South African Police Services spokeswoman Nqobile Gwala on Sunday confirmed the two arrests and said the suspects were facing charges of public violence and malicious damage to property. Players had to flee to the change-room as the scenes played out.

Kaizer Chiefs have appointed Patrick Mabedi as interim coach to replace Steve Komphela for the remainder of the 2017/2018 season‚ the club announced on Thursday.

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has joined political parties in condemning the violence that took place at the stadium.
