Gor Mahia sanctioned for Machakos chaos

28 October 2014, 17:15 William Korir

Nairobi - Gor Mahia have been sanctioned by the Football Kenya Federation for crowd trouble that took place last weekend in their clash with Sofapaka.

Gor fans were involved in ugly scenes in Machakos Sunday after their club lost 3-2 to their counterparts in a crucial league clash at the Machakos County Stadium.

The FKF fined them KES 500,000, with Sofapaka also being fined KES 300,000 for not engaging enough security for the match.

Gor were also ordered to play their final matches of the league season behind closed doors.

The Machakos County government has also banned Gor from playing at the Kenyatta Stadium until further notice and is demanding KES 10 million to cover for damage caused by its fans on Sunday.

This follows violent scenes witnessed during the Sofapaka vs Gor Mahia match where a trail of destruction was left behind by aggrieved K’Ogalo fans.

Addressing the media at the stadium after inspecting the damage, Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua termed the violence as unwarranted and inhuman.

Gor are yet to officially comment on the sanctions.

Gor fans burnt a vehicle, motor bikes and damaged shops around the stadium after the game, an act that Mutua termed unacceptable and one that he will not allow to happen again in his jurisdiction.

" It is unacceptable for such to happen and we will not condone it. For now we have banned Gor Mahia. They are a good club but the conduct of their fans is not acceptable," Mutua said.

Gor on their part have said that the police are to blame for the violence.

" The police are to blame for inciting fans. We all know it is a heated game so why do they have to use teargas to handle the fans knowing they are easily poked, Assistant Secretary Ronald Ngala said.

The Football Kenya Federation said it would offer sanctions to the club Tuesday.

" Such behaviour cannot be condoned and must be adressed in no uncertain terms, chairman Sam Nyamweya said.

Gor are a point ahead of Sofapaka in the KPL title race and will be champions if they win their remaining two matches.
