Sony Sugar chairman reveals to Goal that they will move to court on Tuesday to demand for compensation after two of their players were seriously injured
Kenya Premier League side Sony Sugar now wants Gor Mahia to be kicked out of GOtv Shield Cup tournament.
To achieve this, the Awendo-based club will on Tuesday move to court to demand compensation from Gor Mahia after two of their players were seriously injured after their semi-final match at Kasarani on Saturday.
Sony chairman Christopher Odero said: “It is now obvious that the federation and all those committees are not serious in reigning hooliganism especially where Gor Mahia is involved.
“We are biting the bullet irrespective of what happens to us. On Tuesday we will go to court and demand that Gor Mahia be barred from taking part in the tournament. We will seek for an injunction stopping the event until such a time that we are compensated,” Odero told Goal.
He added: “After what happened on Saturday, it is now obvious that our position that it is Gor Mahia fans who caused trouble during our Kenyan Premier League match four weeks ago in Awendo was correct.”
He said Benson Waiswa, one of the players who was injured, will be transferred to Nairobi Hospital for specialized treatment.
“He is bleeding from his nose and ears meaning that he could have ruptured a vital organ. We have to transfer him to a major hospital for specialized treatment. He said further tests are also being carried out on goalkeeper Wycliff Kasaya.
Gor won the match 4-2 on post-match penalties but violence broke out immediately after the final whistle when K’Ogalo fans descended on Sony players and appeared to specifically target Wycliff Kasaya.
