Khoza To Appear In Front Of Parliament Today
PSL Chairman Appears Before SA Parliament
The chairman of the PSL, Dr Irvin Khoza, is appearing before the South African parliament today (Tuesday) to answer questions on the recent stadium chaos incident.
Following a Nedbank Cup match for Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars in Durban on April 21, football fans stormed into the Moses Mabhida Stadium pitch to show their displeasure after Amakhosi’s elimination from the competition with a 2-0 loss to Ea Lla Koto.
While the PSL has already charged Chiefs for bringing the league into the disrepute and misconduct after the supporters’ pitch invasion, the league had been summoned to parliament to answer to the portfolio committee on sport regarding security at the stadium.

Supporters and security officials were reportedly assaulted, and property damaged at Durban’s 2010 FIFA World Cup stadium, following the events of the unfortunate incident.
Khoza, who is also the chairman of Orlando Pirates, as well as his Kaizer Chiefs’ counterpart Kaizer Motaung are some of the top Mzansi football officials in attendance in parliament.
As reported by the Siya crew, it was confirmed from the South African Police Service (SAPS) last week that that three suspects arrested in connection with Moses Mabhida Stadium chaos, Siphosenkosi Knowledge Memela (35), John Sibongiseni Khumalo (29) and Khwezilomso Madiba (35), will again appear in court on May 25, following their appearance at the Durban Magistrates Court last Wednesday on charges of alleged Public Violence.
National Police Commissioner Khehla Sithole is one of the people also appearing before the parliament today regarding the issue of security at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
