Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairperson Irvin Khoza has condemned the violence by Kaizer Chiefs fans at Durban’s Moses Mabhida stadium on Saturday, where 18 people were injured and a security guard badly beaten.

Khoza was addressing a media briefing in Johannesburg on Monday. Khoza says there will be a thorough investigation into the rampage by Kaizer Chiefs fans at Moses Mabhida stadium on Saturday night.

The violence resulted in serious injury to a security guard, 32-year-old Sabelo Maziba, caught on camera. Khoza has confirmed that the guard has been discharged from hospital. He also confirmed that there were no deaths following the violence at the stadium. He says there will be a thorough investigation into the incident.

Khoza urged police to do more, saying they struggle to deploy enough officers to such events, due to lack of funding.  He says any decision on possible sanctions against the Kaizer Chiefs will only be made after a formal disciplinary hearing.
