“Grateful To Be Alive” – Amakhosi Fan Victim Speaks

Kaizer Chiefs' Jessica Motaung Visited Two Security Guards

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 26, 2018 11:28 AM

Sabelo Maziba was just doing his job when he was set upon by a rabble of angry Kaizer Chiefs fans last weekend, and he says that he’s grateful to be alive.

The situation spilled over at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night as the Amakhosi were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Free State Stars, with supporters storming the pitch and causing all sorts of destruction.

Chiefs have since been charged by the PSL and will face some sort of punishment for the actions of some of their supporters, with the club hoping to curb the sort of behaviour that went down in Durban.

This week Chiefs’ marketing director, Jessica Motaung, went to visit Maziba and Khumbulani Qwabe, another security marshal at the game, to offer them the club’s wishes on their road to recovery.

Maziba is not able to swallow solids until he gets better because of injuries around his jaw, told the club’s official website, “I am grateful to be alive. Everything happened so fast, I didn’t even have time to run as the mob was too strong. I am happy that Kaizer Chiefs came to see me today. It is great to see that the club cares about our well-being.

“It is truly heartbreaking (what happened), but we hope valuable lessons were learned by all those who did bad things.”

Meanwhile, Motaung said, “We are so glad that Sabelo and Khumbulani are convalescing well after they were senselessly beaten up on Saturday. We once again strongly condemn the brutal acts of criminality we witnessed. We need to understand that people like Sabelo and Khumbulani are there to look after our safety at stadiums, we need to respect and appreciate them.”

Really good gesture from Mdm Motaung to visit the victims, who were just doing their job last Saturday. I just wish Mr Motaung Snr could show leadership and have a press conference, instead of issuing a cold, impersonal press statement. Mr Motaung should stop hiding at this trying time for the team, and it's supporters

@blackmeteor, yes, I understand Jessica 's visit to the victims mate, if a fau representative never bothered to visit the victims, we would still accuse them of being bad people.

@blackmeteor, yeah, you are correct mate, but there was no way I could have predicted our own goalkeeper, Onyango will beat us last night, little bit disappointed.

@setlaboswana The aim of these visits by our beautiful (inside and out) sister is to show our management's solidarity against criminal behaviour and off course it is also humanitarian. The publicity is unavoidable and also necessary to get the point across.

As much as I support pitch invading... Honestly I dont support beating up vulnerable securities. I just wish all those who beat them up can be sentenced a minimum of 5 years. That was brutally of them to do that.

@scoreman99, we are not a B team my friend, to be honest with you, I don't care whether Ajax want to avoid play-offs, we are going to humiliate them and Downs would be confirmed ABSA Premiership Champions on Saturday.

If Chiefs is really sorry about what happened to the guys, they must pay them R10,000 each until the end of the year

@JackKhosi, exactly, their intention is to let the public know they do care hence they visited the victims. If they didn't advertise the visit, the visit wouldn't have served the purpose for which it was intended.
