A Highlanders fan who was caught on camera holding a hammer inside Barbourfields Stadium two weeks ago has been arrested and fined.
Bongani Ncube from Emakhandeni faced two charges namely threatening behaviour and failing to wear a mask.
A Premier Soccer League (PSL) official told Chronicle that Ncube accepted both charges and was fined ZWL$3 000 in total before being released. Said the official:
Ncube was fined $2 000 for threatening behaviour and $1 000 for not wearing a face mask in the stadium.
Follow-ups were made with the police after his images went viral and they managed to arrest him on Wednesday.
We urge spectators to desist from acts of hooliganism at the stadia.
Ncube’s arrest comes after another fan was nabbed for performing sexually explicit acts at the Soweto End.
The unnamed fan also ran onto the pitch and was arrested in Cowdray Park five days after the match.
