Premier Soccer League acting CEO Cambridge Mokanyane has condemned
the unsightly acts of violence which occurred during the goalless draw
between Kaizer Chiefs and Golden Arrows on Saturday.
According to the Football411.com website, an entertaining match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium turned ugly in
the 33rd minute when referee Lwandile Mfiki was attacked by a supporter
after showing Reneilwe Letsholonyane a red card.
Other sections of the crowd were then also seen throwing
projectiles onto the field, a similar incident to what happened in the
same stadium when Orlando Pirates played AmaZulu last week, leaving the
PSL supremo seething over the sights.
"This is completely unacceptable in our football. It does not do
us nor the image of our football any good when we have fans invading the
pitch and others throwing objects," Mokanyane said in a statement.
"We condemn this in the strongest possible terms. We will wait
for a full report from both the Match Commissioner and the referee which
will be forwarded to the League Prosecutor."
Mokanyane added his praise for the way the South African Police
Service took control of the situation, adding: "The police have acted
swiftly and have apprehended the suspect. We applaud this move."
The incident is now in the hands of the prosecutor, with the PSL set to take their own action after the police investigation.
