Ten suspects arrested in connection with the Moses Mabhida Stadium fan rampage on April 21 have seen their court cases postponed until June 26.
John Khumalo (29), Phelelani Jojisa (32), Kwezi Madima (35), Cebo Hadebe (21), Douglas Mkhize (42), Lungisani Jaca (33), Nolwethu Cokotha (29), Zibongile Njova (27), Sihle Zungu (29) and Siphosenkosi Memela (32) have each been released on R1000 bail after appearing before the Durban Magistrate's Court today.
The bail conditions prevent them from attending any sporting events until a verdict is reached.
Ugly scenes ensued after Kaizer Chiefs lost 2-0 to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals last month, as supporters assaulted security guards and damaged the venue to the tune of R2,6 million among other acts of hooliganism.
On the day 12 people were treated for injuries at the stadium, while six were admitted to hospital and later discharged.
Steve Komphela resigned as coach of Chiefs after the game, having endured increasingly hostile abuse from the stands as the Soweto giants finished a third straight season without silverware.
