The match had to be suspended for almost an hour after Percy Tau’s 82nd minute sixth goal sparked a pitch invasion by the Pirates fans.
Speaking during a press conference on Tuesday, Malema called on the Pirates fan to respect the club.
“We don’t agree with violence. Even this thing of Pirates was not correct. Pirates is a big club and must be respected‚” said Malema, who is also a supporter of Pirates.
Malema becomes the latest politician to condemn Saturday’s violence after former reserve bank governor Tito Mboweni who called for a two-season ban for Pirates.
“Why complicate matters folks. Simple. Orlando Pirates must be banned from the PSL for two seasons. Period. There has to be a consequence,” said Mboweni.
Malema responded: “Order my governor, with due respect I submit.”
