The deaths of two soccer fans during the Soweto derby are haunting Power FM sports presenter Thabiso Mosia as he is being sued for R1.5-million.

This comes after the CEO of Stadium Management South Africa, Jacques Grobbelaar, filed papers at the South Gauteng High Court in Joburg claiming that he was defamed and portrayed as not caring about the loss of the two lives at the FNB Stadium during the Carling Black Label Cup game between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs in July.
