Former Gor chair slams hooligans

31 October 2014, 09:24

Nairobi - Former Gor Mahia chairman Fred Mwango says the football hooliganism, which ruined Gor Mahia's fixture against Sofapaka last week, simply could not be justified.

Both clubs have been found guilty of committing infractions during that match and punitive measures have subsequently been taken against them. However, Mwango, given the influence that he has in Kenyan football, thought it prudent to air his opinion on the matter.

The football administrator was particularly critical of the manner in which the violence was handled, suggesting that the law enforcement officials stationed at the Kenyatta Stadium did not not execute their tasks adequately.

"Though I condemn the hooliganism that left a trail of destruction, I feel the Police officers on duty should be held accountable for failing to discharge their duties," Mwango told Futaa.com.

"When they rush in throwing the tear gas, they inconvenience innocent people especially the disabled," added Mwango.

"Teargas should be used as a last resort or when the situation gets out of hand but not to everybody in the pitch. The Policemen lack adequate training on crowd management."
