The Premier Soccer League chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza has reaffirmed that what took place over the weekend was a criminal act, but believes that more could have been done to possibly avoid the incident.   

Kaizer Chiefs suffered a 2-0 loss to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup competition at the weekend, where supporters thereafter stormed the pitch at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

“Why don’t we implement the law? The law is clear that if a criminal act happens, arrest. But more importantly, if the VOC (Venue Operation Centre) at the start of the shaking of the fence people are deployed, you wouldn’t have (these) problems,” Dr Khoza said at a press conference yesterday. 

“Let’s see what happens in the deployment then after we can come and talk about what else we must do next, we have not even done that, we have never ever seen any deployment of public order policing to that situation before it happens. It never happened. 

“So, until it happens, it is in the act that they are the only people who are trained on public order by police. Securities are not trained on public order policing that’s why it is not easy for them to intervene. But, the VOC commander is the boss who can only deploy in that situation so I’m saying let’s expect all that is in the law, in the act and see if it doesn’t work what we do next. We have not even started implementing what is in the act, so let’s do that first and see what it does for us and if it does not work let’s try something else,” he added.
