Khoza condemns 'hooliganism' by Orlando Pirates fans

Orlando Pirates chairman, Irvin Khoza, has expressed his disappointment on 'hooliganism' by Orlando Pirates fans who stormed the Loftus Versveld field after Mamelodi Sundowns scored six goals against the Buccaneers.

A number of people were injured and the game was suspended on Saturday when angry fans took to the field to vent their frustration.

Khoza says fans must use available platforms to voice their frustrations on clubs and players, and not resort to violence.

He has committed himself as club chairman that they will cooperate with police as fully as possible.

Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation executive director, Nomfundo Mogapi, says it is concerning that South African society is normalising violence.

Mogapi says there has to be social intervention.

She explains that their research reveals that tightening security measures only makes the situation worse.

We should be asking ourselves as South Africans...what is it about our society that people feel like other options don't work and violence is the way?
