Nairobi to ban Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards matches

24 August 2015, 14:06 William Korir

Nairobi - Nairobi County will ban Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards from playing in the County due to the amount of damage caused by the two sides whenever they play their matches.

Nairobi County communications director Walter Mong'are says that the County will consider not holding the matches in the city to stop the violence and wanton destruction of property during the matches.

" We have written to the clubs and league managers to have the two clubs play outside the County because we cannot be doing this all the time," he told News24 Monday.

" We cannot simply afford the time and money to be cleaning up their mess. Every-time there is a match we count destruction and this is simply unacceptable," he added.

The Kenyan Premier League mashemeji derby clash between Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards was abandoned, then called off due to crowd trouble at the Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi, Sunday.

Trouble started when Referee Rafael Nduati awarded Gor a penalty in the 65th minute after Leopards captain Jackson Saleh handled the ball in the box in his attempt to clear an Abouba Sibomana cross from the left.

Meddie Kagere stepped up to take the spot kick for Gor, but Leopards fans started throwing objects onto the pitch forcing the players and officials to scamper for safety.

Police efforts to calm matters proved futile and after 30 minutes Match Commissioner Paul Kaunda from Kisumu County decided to call off the match citing security concerns  after consulting with his referees.

The abandonment was a sad end to what had been an entertaining match, and will surely see Leopards punished for the mess, as it was their fans that started the melee.
