The police have been in search of the perpetrators following the April 21 incident at Durban’s 2010 FIFA World Cup venue, where football supporters stormed the pitch and were seen beating a security guard while also causing damage to property, following Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-0 loss to Free State Stars.

Three suspects appeared in court today (Wednesday) for alleged public violence, which was confirmed by the SAPS.

“Siphosenkosi Knowledge Memela (35), John Sibongiseni Khumalo (29) and Khwezilomso Madiba (35) appeared at the Durban Magistrates Court this morning on charges of (alleged) Public Violence. The case has been remanded to 25 May 2018. All three accused were released on bail of R1000-00 each, pending their next court appearance. 

“In terms of their bail conditions, they are not allowed to attend any other sporting events. All three accused indicated to the court that they intend pleading guilty,” the police confirmed in a statement.

As confirmed by the police, the suspects have been identified as a truck driver, a taxi rank manager and a taxi owner respectively. The acting provincial commissioner commended the task team for the arrests made so far, and has promised of more arrests in the near future.

The SAPS have advised that those who were part of the mob that went on a rampage at the Moses Mabhida Stadium that day, should hand themselves over to the police.

“Detectives are still appealing to those people that were injured in the violence that unfolded to come forward and provide investigators with a statement. Many of those that were injured left after receiving medical attention and did not leave their contact details behind with police.

“Detectives are also appealing to witnesses to please come forward and provide police with information with regards to the perpetrators of the violence and destruction of property that was witnessed on that day. An appeal is made to all members of the public who can assist the police in their investigations to urgently contact Captain Reddy 082 458 5630 or Detective Warrant Officer Mlungwana 082 662 7764. All information will be treated with the strictest confidence,” stated the police.

They must be charged, to set an example we all support soccer and we were all not happy with Komphela but never intend to kill security officers on duty at the stadium and damage media property, just because you want the coach to be fired

I believe it’s only fair to release them too, in any way do u support the violence but justice should be for all or no one at all if the so called “investigation specialists “ are just useless
