Plaque to remember the fallen

A special memorial plaque to remember the two fallen Kaizer Chiefs supporters has been inaugurated on Saturday morning, ahead of the Soweto Derby.

Present were family and friends of the two late supporters – Prince Chauke from Bungeni village, Limpopo, and Johannes Nkosi from Madidi, north of Pretoria.

The unveiling was led by a priest. Amongst the people present were also members of Amakhosi’s management and the Stadium Management.

The two supporters became a victim of the stampede that occurred just ahead of the Carling Black Label Champions game on 29 July.

“It was very tragic,” Chiefs Marketing Director Jessica Motaung looks back on the incident. “We still can’t phantom that these two loyal supporters are no more with us. This plaque is here to always remember these loyal Chiefs supporters. It’s also here to be aware that this can never happen again.

“Our supporters go to our games to celebrate the Glamour Boys.

“Our feelings go out to the families and friends of Prince and Johannes. We will never forget them and they will forever stay in our thoughts.”

The plaque is at Gate 14.
