April 11, 2001 will always be remembered as the day of the worst football disaster in the history of the country's game.43 people were crushed to death in a match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates which was already underway when scores of people were still pouring in the 60,000 capacity Ellis Park Stadium. Some reports suggested a further 30,000 fans were still trying to gain entry to the stadium. Reports also suggest that 120,000 fans were admitted into the stadium. An Orlando Pirates equalizer sparked a further surge by the fans trying to gain entry as they scrambled to see what had happened. Ten years earlier, in 1991, 42 people died at the Oppenheimer Stadium in Orkney outside Klerksdorp in the North West Province when too many fans were admitted resulting in a stampede. Later the Commission of Inquiry was instituted for Ellis Park disaster headed by Judge President, Bernard Ngoepe and Advocate Semenya



Meanwhile here are other major football disasters in Africa

In the wake of Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest while playing for Bolton Wanderers against Tottenham Hotspur in an FA Cup match, questions have been raised on how often should tests be carried out on players.

Fabrice Ndala Muamba was born on April 6 1988 in Zairian capital Kinshasa now called the Democratic Republic of Congo. His father, Marcel, worked for the regime of former Zaire president Mobutu Sese Seko, who was overthrown in 1997. Hunted by anti-Mobutu forces during one of the bloodiest civil wars in modern history, Marcel was forced to flee the country. His wife, Gertrude, and four children were taken in by his brother. But they also had to leave when Muamba's uncle was killed.

A talented young man with a dream to one day earning a doctorate, he arrived in England speaking not a single English word. He nonetheless went on to achieve 10 GCSEs and A-levels in English, French and Mathematics. He has ambitions to one day become an accountant and be referred to as 'Dr Muamba'. The English paper, The Daily Mail, reports that Muamba has more qualifications than any of his Bolton Wanderers teammates.
