Kaizer Chiefs have named and shamed those who have been punished for the violent scenes that took place at last year's Nedbank Cup semi-final, with Kaizer Motaung having his say on the matter.

There were very unsavoury scenes last April in a clash between Chiefs and Free State Stars at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, with several being hurt and millions of rands-worth of damage being caused. 
On March 29, nine people were found guilty of public violence and appeared at the Durban Regional Court for sentencing, one of whom has been handed a three-year prison sentence for his role in the violence.
A club statement on Chiefs’ official website read, “Khwezilomo Madiba was handed a three-year jail sentence while the other eight co-accused received suspended sentences.  The reason for a harsher sanction for Madiba was due to the fact that he had been found guilty of a similar offence previously.
“The eight who received suspended sentences are Siphosenkosi Knowledge Memela, John Sibongiseni Khumalo, Cebolendoda Hadebe, Douglas Mhlaliseni Mkhize, Nolwethu Cokotha, Zibongile Njova, Sihle Duncan Zungu and Dennis Thusi. They were also given 16 hours of community service and instructed to attend anger management programmes.”
Meanwhile, Amakhosi chairman, Motaung, has welcomed the sentencing for what he calls ‘deplorable acts’ saying, “We truly welcome the sentencing of the nine people who were responsible for the injuries to security marshals and damages to property amounting to millions of rands. We hope this punishment sends a very strong message to all those fans who believe violence is the only answer when results don’t go their way.

“Stadiums are and should always be child-and-woman-friendly environments. Families must be able to attend games with no worries of experiencing any violence. Barbaric acts of the senseless violence we witnessed in Durban last year endanger the lives of innocent people and cannot be tolerated under any circumstances.
“We once again call on those people involved in the deplorable acts and claim to be football supporters to stop this hooliganism as it takes the game and our society backwards. We also urge law enforcement agencies to deal with the perpetrators.”
Chiefs were forced to play two games behind closed doors as punishment for the scenes in KwaZulu-Natal and will be hoping that they never see anything like it again.

Without promoting hooliganism by our fellow mates, Chiefs management are to be blamed in that incident.

KC is big club, thus they shouldn't leave this matter of hooliganism to the law enforcement agencies only. The club has resources that can be directed towards educating the fans abt good behaviour. The should also stop this thing of employing coaches who continue to break our hearts.
