Two more to appear in court in connection with Durban stadium soccer violence



Police on Monday said two suspects handed themselves over to the investigating officers.

Two more people are expected to appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court today in connection with the violence that erupted when fans of Kaizer Chiefs football club stormed the soccer pitch when their team lost at the Moses Mabidha Stadium on April 21.

Police on Monday said a student, 21, and a gardener, 42, handed themselves over to police.

“We welcome the fact that suspects are beginning to contact the investigating officers in order for them to have their day in court and we are encouraging the outstanding suspects to do so immediately before police officers pounce on them,” said police spokesperson, Brigadier Jay Naicker.

The arrests came on the same day police released the photographs of 13 people it believed could help them with their investigation. Naicker appealed to those in the photos to come forward or for members of the public to help them identify them.
