Sergeant Boss Kaizer Motaung welcomes the hard punishment awarded to Moses Mabhida Hooligans.



One of the hooligans, Khwezilomo Madiba, was sentenced to three years in prison and the other eight co-indictors were suspended.

The more stringent sanctions on Madiba were due to the fact that they had previously been convicted of similar crimes.

"I have a view that we should deal with his case differently as far as sentencing is concerned.

"I think 3 years in prison is a good sentence," judge Sam Luthuli said during the sentence.

The eight who were suspended were 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 were instructed to attend anger management programs.

Motaung said the stadium should be family friendly.

He warned that similar "barbaric acts" seen in Durban should never be tolerated.

"The stadium should always be a child – friendly environment," he said.

"Your family should be able to attend the game without worrying about experiencing violence.

"The brutal act of ruthless violence that we saw last year in Durban endangers the lives of innocent people and can not be tolerated under any circumstances.
