Durban police have confirmed that they are not rushing to interview Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso ‘Jingles’ Mosimane in connection with the case of assault which was opened against him on Sunday.
A Durban security official, Nathi Ngwenya opened a case of assault against Mosimane on Sunday after the Mamelodi Sundowns vs AmaZulu match in Durban. Ngwenya reported the matter to the Umlazi police station shortly after the match.
Ngwenya works for Ngwelela Security Services which is contracted by AmaZulu FC to provide security at their home matches in KwaZulu-Natal. These duties include ensuring football fans do not invade the pitch before, during or after matches.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Ngwenya and Mosimane became involved in a scuffle which took place after the thrilling 3-3 draw between Mamelodi Sundowns and AmaZulu.
The scuffle broke out after Mosimane approached Ngwenya about the manner in which two Mamelodi Sundowns fans were removed from the pitch after they broke through the security barrier.
TimesLive.co.za reported that police have confirmed that a case of assault was opened and officers have been assigned to investigate the matter. KwaZulu-Natal Police spokesman Lt-Colonel Thulani Zwane said no arrests have been made.
Zwane added that the case was still at a very early stage of investigation having only been reported on Sunday evening. He said there was no rush to speak to Mosimane and the investigation would proceed with all due care and deliberation.
Zwane said once police had conducted their investigation the matter would be handed to the prosecutors who will decide whether to take the matter to court or not.
Zwane warned that the public prosecutor’s office was overloaded with similar cases and the matter could take some time to resolve.
