Gor Mahia fined Ksh 1.9m and banned from Kasarani

Post by faraja »

A section of Gor Mahia fans went on a destruction spree after the game which ended in a barren draw. Fans were irked by the numerous unfair fouls they felt center referee Kevin Amol awarded Murang’a Seal.
After the final whistle, K'Ogalo fans attacked their Murang’a counterparts forcing police officers to fire teargas and live bullets as they battled the fan, while players, officials and journalists took cover on the pitch.

<p>Sports Kenya Director General Pius Metto told Nation Sport that have to pay the amount before they are allowed to play any other game at the facility.
“I have written to them on the level of damage which totals to Sh1.9 million. The fine arises from the damage to electrical tunnels, seats and wooden panels and other facilities. If they don’t pay, then they wouldn’t use the stadium for their matches," said Metto

“Apart from the ban, we want an elaborate action plan on how to contain their fans in future matches. If they don’t give me that plan, then they will also not use the facility. The fine must be accompanied by an elaborate plan,” added Metto.

"We are talking with the management of Kasarani to expedite the process of fixing the damages caused. We ask our fans to handle themselves with decorum to avoid such fines. We also regret our actions and apologise for the chaos that took place," said sec gen Ochola.
