The South African Police Service (SAPS) has confirmed that one of the suspects who was arrested regarding the hooliganism that took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium has been released from custody.

Following the nasty scenes of hooliganism that erupted at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening, as fans stormed the field of play after the Nedbank Cup semi-final match in which Kaizer Chiefs lost to Free State Stars, the SAPS confirmed to the Siya crew yesterday (Sunday) that two arrests had been made with regards to the incident.

However, it has since been confirmed that one of the people who was arrested has been released from police custody, while the other one is due to appear in court today.

“No other arrests have been made at this stage. Over the weekend, two suspects were arrested, but the other one has been released because there was nothing linking him to the case,” SAPS spokesperson Nqobile Gwala told the Siya crew.

“So now it’s only one suspect who will appear in court. He’s appearing today in court,” added Gwala.

Gwala confirmed to the Siya crew that the SAPS is continuing with the investigations, with more suspects expected to be arrested should they be found.

Truly speaking SAPS is useless. No wonder they cant make a breakethrough with Senzo's case. Out of that scene @ Moses Mabhida stadium they only managed to arrest 2 peoples.

What was the really reason just to grab a manew walking along the road and arrested him. There is a big Senzo case with evidence but is going nowhere. What is the really job for our SAPS group. Even a security guard would have arrested more than 25 culprits but this type of police is just for nothing

Why is this called an "update" ?? What about the scores of people involved in the violence, all of which were captured on camera ?......What are the reasons for only 2 arrests? That would be an update.

But SAPS was there when the crime happened. Why did they not arrest people invading the pitch? Circulate the pictures and open the phone lines for the public to assist to identify the culprits. Do not fail to make the arrests on this case, otherwise it will get worse.
