Two soccer fans died and several others injured during the Carling Black Label game between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.
Official are alleging that the stampede was as a result of ticketless fans trying to gain illegal access to the stadium.
The man accused of selling fake tickets to fans, has flatly denied the allegations.
Staunch Kaizer Chiefs supporter Nkosinathi Maduna said yesterday that he was shocked to hear he was implicated in the weekend tragedy.
Maduna is popularly known as “Parker” – because Bernard Parker is his favourite Chiefs player – allegedly sold two fake tickets to a fan for R200.
Stadium South Africa released a statement on Sunday where they alleged Maduna sold the fake tickets and the police are after him to arrest him.
“I never sold fake tickets to anyone. I did not have a ticket myself because I do not like attending derbies. A friend gave me a ticket at 2.30pm, after she changed her mind about going to the game. I went in the last minute. What I would normally do is buy more tickets for my fellow branch members who are unable to buy and claim the money from them,” he said.
Maduna said: “I am not scared of anything because I did nothing wrong I spend about R 15000 on original Chiefs merchandise that I buy at Naturena. I sleep on a chiefs branded sheet with a chiefs short and vest, even the cup I drink tea from is branded Kaizer Chiefs. Why would I then go and sell people fake tickets? I will never do that. These people are embarrassing me. Of course I am angry. I feel bad that people got injured as we watched the game.”
Stadium South Africa’s statement said they have tried reaching out to Maduna for talks but he is nowhere to be found.
