“All fans must not engage in any acts of lawlessness or acts which may amount to intimidation of other citizens before, during and after the matches. Any acts of lawlessness will be dealt with in accordance with the law,” said Kimaiyo.

“Let us always remember that our guard should not be relaxed whatsoever and where there are incidents of any nature, then our toll free numbers 999 and 112 which are accessible throughout should be used for passing on of such information,” added the IG.
