Sonko wants Gor Mahia fans arrested for torching vehicles

13 August 2015, 15:07 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator, Mike Sonko has called for the arrest and prosecution of unruly Gor Mahia fans who set ablaze three vehicles in Nairobi Wednesday night.

Trouble started after three fans were knocked down by a vehicle belonging to Nairobi City Council. The three were returning home from City Stadium, where the team had played Ushuru FC.

“I extend my sympathies to the three fans who were knocked down after Wednesday night match. I strongly condemn the unfortunate and unacceptable acts of hooliganism that were witnessed last evening,” Sonko said in a statement on Thursday.

The Senator said such acts of hooliganism are uncalled for, and called for the arrest of those who were involved in the skirmishes.

“We must all follow the rule of law and in no way should we condone such behaviour. Such acts of vandalism and lawlessness are a far cry from what Gor Mahia fans should stand for. All those who participated in causing violence and destruction of property must face the full force of the law,” Sonko said.

The club also condemned the incident saying it fully supports the rule of law and doesn’t condone such behavior in any way.

“These acts of vandalism and lawlessness are a far cry from what Gor Mahia FC stands for. Those that engaged in these heinous acts of hooliganism must face the full arm of the law.

“These despicable acts of a minority should never prevail over the values of the majority,” the club said in a statement posted on their website.
