The South African Police Service admitted to Parliament that they neglected to act on findings of a threat assessment prior to kick-off at last month’s disastrous premiership game in Durban.
The portfolios of Sport and Recreation Police held a joint meeting in Parliament on Tuesday.
Last month, violence ensued at the Moses Mabhida stadium leaving 21 people injured after Kaizer Chiefs lost to Free State Stars.
697 security and police personnel were present for the match with its 26 000 spectators.
Police now admit they neglected to act on findings of a threat assessment prior to kick-off.
