Three suspects arrested for Moses Mabhida Stadium violence.
KwaZulu-Natal: Police officers attached to the SAPS KZN Provincial Task Team have arrested three suspects wanted for the case of public violence which occurred at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on 21 April 2018. The three which include a truck driver(35); a taxi rank manger(29) and a taxi owner(35) are set to appear at the Durban Magistrates Court tomorrow on charges of public violence.
The Acting Provincial Commissioner commended the Task Team for the latest breakthrough. “We know how much of work has been put in by these dedicated detectives to bring us to where we are now in terms of the investigation. It is only a matter of time before others are arrested. I would advise those who were part of the mob that went on a rampage on that unfortunate day to hand themselves over to police as one of these three who were arrested did. If not you will have to be continuously looking over your shoulders. We will not tolerate such hooliganism in this province,” he reiterated.
Detectives are still appealing to those people that were injured in the violence that unfolded to come forward and provide investigators with a statement. Many of those that were injured left after receiving medical attention and did not leave their contact details behind with police.
Detectives are also appealing to witnesses to please come forward and provide police with information with regards to the perpetrators of the violence and destruction of property that was witnessed on that day. An appeal is made to all members of the public who can assist the police in their investigations to urgently contact Captain Reddy 082 458 5630 or Detective Warrant Officer Mlungwana 082 662 7764. All information will be treated with the strictest confidence.
