Following the resignation of head coach Steve Komphela, Kaizer Chiefs have decided that Patrick Mabedi will take charge of the first team for the remainder of the 2017/2018 season.

They also trashed TV cameras, audio equipment and advertising boards and burnt seats before being dispersed by police firing tear gas and stun grenades.

South African Police Services spokeswoman Nqobile Gwala on Sunday confirmed the two arrests and said the suspects were facing charges of public violence and malicious damage to property.

France 'has proof' Syria used chlorine
Macron has long called the use of chemical weapons in Syria a "red line" that would trigger French retaliation. France says it can prove the Syrian government used chemical weapons against civilians last weekend.

The incident comes just three days after the club was fined R250 000 (R200 000 of which was suspended) for failing to control their supporters after their humbling at the hands of Chippa United at the FNB Stadium on April 7. Founded in 1970, they are the most popular and successful football club in the republic, capable of drawing 90,000 crowds for friendly matches.

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Kompela meanwhile resigned as a result of the incident. "The coach is not safe", said Chiefs general manager Bobby Motaung.

"We can't wait for another person to die before we act".

Klobuchar, who helped usher through the rules change, said that was not the only accommodation they had to make for Maile. But the Arkansas Republican acknowledged that some of his colleagues do, "so the cloakroom might be a good compromise".

After this scenes calls were made that Komphela, who was already under vast pressure, to vacate his position and the tone of their supporters didn't change despite the league coming to an end next month.

In a statement on Sunday, the PSL said "hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football".

"The league will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible for this hooliganism are subjected to judicial processes", the statement said. But the country has also had serious problems involving fans at soccer games, often involving Kaizer Chiefs, the hugely popular Soweto club that attracts millions of followers from all across the country.
