KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Moses Mabhida Stadium was a scene of chaos on Saturday when Kaizer Chiefs lost their Nedbank Cup semi-final clash to Free State Stars.

Kaizer Chiefs fans were mainly responsible for the riot as they set fires in the stands, ripped up parts of the stadium, invaded the field and attacked security guards and others, including television camera operators.

Kaizer Chiefs, Saturday night's Nedbank Cup hosts at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, have finally broken their silence on the violence which erupted at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

There are no reports of any of the players getting caught up in the violence but one steward was seriously injured after he was surrounded by a hoard of thugs, who beat him with chairs before leaving him motionless on the turf.

It is likely that Chiefs will receive a charge sheet this coming week and punishment against them will be swift, with the club just last week receiving a R250,000 fine, R200,000 of which was suspended for 24 months on the condition there was no repeat of the fan violence that followed their 3-0 loss to Chippa United earlier in April.

"Acts of violence perpetrated by individuals like last night can not be tolerated".

Kaizer Chiefs chairperson Kaizer Motaung has broken his silence following Saturday night's violent end to the club's football game against Free State Stars.

Football fans around the country expect the PSL to hand down a harsh punishment on both the fans and the club in the near future.

The incident has drawn condemnation from South African Minister of Sports and Recreation, Tokozile Xasa and political parties.

"We can't wait for another person to die before we act".

Stadium Management SA on Sunday registered its "grave concern" over the gruesome assault of the female security guard. "Football is a lovely game and I can't idle while few supporters are making a skunk of our game", Xasa said on Sunday.

Speaking outside court, Jojisa's sister Nomaswazi said it was unfair that her brother was the only one arrested.

"This continues to make mockery of SASREA ACT as it clearly demonstrate that certain security elements are either not met or never implemented which warrants an investigation".
