Rampant Gor Mahia fans released on KES 50,000 bail

25 August 2015, 18:29 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Gor Mahia fans who caused mayhem in the capital city after the weekend mashemeji derby have been released on a KES 50,000 bond each.

Nairobi magistrate Martha Mutuku said that the 19 fans had something to answer after being charged with being armed in public, creating disturbance and assaulting motorists.

They denied the charges.

This followed even more chaos caused by Leopards fans at the Nyayo National Stadium earlier in the day.

The Kenyan Premier League mashemeji derby clash between Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards was abandoned, then called off due to crowd trouble.

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.
