Ingwe slams Muhoroni request

08 September 2014, 19:39

Nairobi - AFC Leopards have hit out at Muhoroni Youth's request to be awarded all three points after the pair's Kenyan Premier League clash last week was marred by crowd violence.

The two sides played out a fiery, yet uneventful, goalless draw at the Nyayo National Stadium, before crowd violence erupted and police eventually needed to use tear gas to disperse the unruly supporters.

Muhoroni have since written to the KPL asking that they be handed a win, considering the league's zero tolerance stance on violence, but Leopards have unsurprisingly reacted angrily to that request.

"We would like to categorically state that AFC Leopards is a peace-loving club and we subscribe to zero tolerance on hooliganism and football violence and as such our fans were not involved in any act of violence," said Ingwe general secretary George Aladwa.

"The said game was under peaceful and friendly conditions and our fans accepted the results and went home peacefully.

"We are quite aware that police made some arrests and it is these people who should be held responsible for anything destroyed.

"Muhoroni Youth should be the last team to demand for action against AFC Leopards considering their fans stoned our bus and intimidated our fans and players' when we played in the first leg against them in Muhoroni, forcing us to hire security from the stadium.

"We request that Kenyan Premier League dismiss Muhoroni Youth's demands with the contempt it deserves."
