REHOBOTH, 18 JUN – The Round 12 match between Black Africa Warriors and Sixty Eleven played in the Kunene Second Division Football League on Saturday in Outjo was stopped due to security reasons with Warriors leading 1-0.
League vice chairperson, Bensley Hanaseb on Sunday told Nampa the match had to stop because the safety of match officials was at risk.
“The report I received said the match had to be stopped because an altercation occurred between an assistant referee and a fan and they felt their safety was at risk. It was the responsibility of the home team, in this case Black Africa Warriors to organise the security for the match,” Hanaseb said.
He said the game will continue as it stands with Black Africa Warriors leading at a date still to be decided.
