Chaos erupted at Durban’s 2010 FIFA World Cup venue, after football supporters vented their frustrations by invading the pitch, following Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-0 loss against Free State Stars in their Nedbank Cup semi-final match on April 21.

On Tuesday morning, three people appeared at the Durban Magistrates Court and were released on R1 000 bail each. The three have been identified as Cebolendoda Hadebe (21), Douglas Mhlaliseni Mkhize (42) and Lungigani Gabriel Jaca (33).

They are expected to appear in court again on May 25. This past weekend, police released photographs of 13 suspects wanted in connection with the stadium violence. Police have urged the community to assist in the investigations to arrest more suspects.

Contacted by the Siya crew for comment, police replied with a statement confirming the latest developments.

“Three suspects appeared in the Durban Magistrates Court this morning on charges of public violence emanating from the incident at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on 21 April 2018. Cebolendoda Hadebe (21), Douglas Mhlaliseni Mkhize (42) and Lungigani Gabriel Jaca (33) appeared briefly at the Durban Magistrates Court. All three were released on bail of R1000-00. The case against them was remanded to 25 May 2018 when they will appear together with their four co-accused who had appeared previously on the same charges,” said the police in a statement.

“We are encouraging the outstanding suspects to contact our investigating officers immediately before our police officers pounce on them. We are once again appealing to injured victims to also come forward as we still require their statements,” confirmed the police.

Last week, police confirmed that three suspects, Siphosenkosi Knowledge Memela (35), John Sibongiseni Khumalo (29) and Khwezilomso Madiba (35) appeared at the Durban Magistrates Court charges of alleged public violence.

They are also set to appear in court again on May 25. All three were released on bail of R1000.

As much as this is a good work by police, I'd like to know if anyone was ever arrested as a result of Orlando Pirates chaos at Loftus on 11 February 2017 and the Sundowns chaos few seasons ago? Or is this just targetting Chiefs faithful?

This is great, those responsible for the chaos at Moses Mabhida must be brought to law, including Bobby Motaung and Kaizer Chiefs players. The root cause of that was the club management and players, fans are just the tip of the iceberg. After all +2000 fans that invaded the pitch are identified, provide them with counselling as a result of depression caused by Chiefs.

@Xolisa{khosificated} if what you did it was the right thing. Why there is so much crisis out there? Hence, who told you as a supporter if you are not contents about the team you support you are allowed to invade the pitch or to sjambok the innocent pupil for your demand? Phela Mbombela Stadium is not Motaung's family business including the FNB. And those equipments you devastated are not belong to Motaung family.

Chiefs fans critisised and called us names last season for pitch invasion, they called us sore loosers saying we don't accept the defeat, I hope they know how we felt last season.. it's not about losing or not accepting the defeat, it's about the leading man... but truely speaking, Kaizer Chiefs family are the ones that must rescue their fans, I mean chiefs fans have been calling for Khompela sacking long time but chiefs management decided to keep him, they did not just invade the pitch, but they were patiently waiting to hear the news that Khompelas' contract is terminated as Khompela was showing no signs that he will resign... even after the fans invaded FNB stadium, it showed that they were not happy but Kaizer Chiefs kept supporting Khompela, then had a nerve to call people who have been with them forever hooligans.. Their fans have been supprting and loving them ever since the team was established. Should someone act, even if it's a small act, it shows they are not happy, so change the way of doing things or address them on what is going to happen, don't wait for them to become angry because they will lose control. Chiefs fans are the victims too here because Chiefs waited until someone almost died, I apploud South African fans, they love their teams with passion and are ready to die for what they love. It is very clear now that in South Africa you have to burn things and vandalise in order to get what you want. Kaizer Chiefs family must swallow their pride and help their fans out because they (Chiefs) are the ones who started this fire not their fans.

These hooligans need to sentenced and put behind bars just to set an example with them, and serve their sentences with no suspension on them or any form of warning or fines

Our heroes madoda.. They are arrested for doing the right thing.... I guess we fans should organise a peaceful march to support our heroes who are now prosecuted for fighting for our beloved team. I will always be grateful to the fans that invaded that pitch in front of the fully forced authorities. They reminded heroes of the struggle... They indeed fought a winning a battle because the cause was removed after few minutes they invaded the pitch.. Big up to all of the guys who put their lives at risk just to save our team in the hands of D.e.v.i.l.

However, the Spanish giants are yet to confirm the fixture or corroborate Sundowns' communications on the matter. In addition, the official FC Barcelona activity schedule released today, which tracks the activities of all the club's various sports teams, makes no mention of a trip to South Africa for the senior mens football team.

Barcelona have again omitted knowledge of a possible friendly match with South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns.  Sundowns revealed on various platforms last weekend that the high-profile match will take place on May 16, 2018 at the iconic FNB Stadium.  The South African club also said their contract with Barcelona stipulates that the La Liga champions would bring their first team players for the proposed friendly
