Today marks SA football's third massive tragedy. In 1965,— Lehlohonolo Lehana (@Grooves_SA) April 11, 2018
12 fans were crushed to death in a stampede at Park Station after Soweto Derby, In Feb 1991,
42 died after crowd violence sparked a stampede at Orkney
and little more later, 43 died
at Ellis Park. #Ellisparkdisaster!
