Murang’a Seal President Robert Macharia has called on the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to investigate the recent disruptions that marred their goalless draw against Gor Mahia at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on November 11, 2023.
Chaos erupted after the final whistle, with a section of fans causing mayhem and engaging in running battles with security personnel.
It all unfolded when an enraged Gor Mahia supporter charged onto the pitch, seemingly with the intention of confronting the referee over perceived officiating errors.
Controversial decisions, such as the disallowed goal by Benson Omala, fueled fan frustration, resulting in seats being thrown onto the pitch.
Police released tear gas and shot rubber bullets in an attempt to restore order.
In an official letter directed to FKF Chief Executive Officer Barry Otieno, Macharia formally expressed his concern and called for decisive actions in accordance with FKF regulations.
“In accordance with Art. 9.1.3 of the FKF Regulations, Murang’a Seal Football Club would like to bring to your attention the incidents that occurred after our FKF Premier League match against Gor Mahia FC played at the Kasarani Stadium on Saturday, 11 November 2023,” he stated.
The seasoned lawyer, proceeded to denounce the actions of the unruly fans who started the the chaos after the final whistle.
“With the security overwhelmed, the hooligans moved to the stands to attack peaceful Murang’a Seal FC fans who had remained in their stands during the chaos awaiting for calm to be restored before they could leave the stadium. Sadly, with no security, our fans and one of our players who was in the stands, were roughed up with some of them losing their valuable items to the goons,”he added.
