“The officer received a cut on his head and was attended to. No serious injuries were reported despite the skirmishes. We have made some arrests and are still continuing with our investigations,” said Manzini-Moyo.

The violence was apparently triggered by the arrest and manhandling of a fan from the Soweto stand by the police.
