Sports, Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa says the Ellis Park tragedy is a disaster that should never happen again.

On the 11th of April 2001, 43 people were trampled to death and many others injured in a stampede at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg during a soccer match between Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.

The sporting fraternity marked the anniversary with messages of remembrance.
