Making a beautiful noise for the beautiful game
That’s right, Two vuvuzelas and a cabbage thrown on to the pitch after Kaizer’s Chiefs‘ defeat to Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 last month.
Amakhosi boss Kaizer Motaung had to apologize for the bad behaviour of his fans an write a cheque for R500000.
According to IOL, League prosecutor Zola Majavu said the time has come to “open the debate” over the viability of allowing fans to carry the controversial instrument into match grounds, when a few would hurl it on to the pitch to display their anger at match officials.
Motaung also seemed to back Majavu’s call, saying the vuvuzela could be used to smuggle sharp objects into the stadium.
“I have never been a fan of the vuvuzela because it just makes noise and adds nothing to the game. I prefer singing at the stadium, as the fans of Bloemfontein Celtic do. But because it is widely liked here I don’t have a problem with it. However, it can be used to bring weapons like knives into the stadium. So we have to reconsider its purpose going forward.”
In the last few years, Majavu has called Amakhosi to appear before his DC eight times, with the club having to pay costs amounting to R1,6-million. Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns have appeared five and six times respectively.
Nothing however was said about banning cabbages!
