With suspicion rife concerning the venue change for the Muhoroni Youth versus Gor Mahia game on Sunday 4 November, Moses Adagala, the Muhoroni chairman has come out clear to declare that City Stadium is the only available venue among their options.
A number of questions have been raised over the Nyanza club’s decision to move the game from the initially communicated venue, Nyayo Stadium to City Stadium which has been a fortress for Gor Mahia lately with suspicions of match fixing therein.
Adagala, however, speaking to futaa.com, said he was informed that Nyayo Stadium was unavailable due to repairs being done there while Kasarani was already booked on Sunday and with the match being on the live games rota, it couldn’t be shifted to a day earlier.
-We requested for Nyayo Stadium but were informed that it is unavailable due to renovations; about Kasarani we were told that Tusker had already booked yet we cannot take the game to Mombasa or Mumias.
-We have not yet ironed out our issues with the Afraha Stadium management so we can’t stage a home game there and we asked KPL if the match could be moved to Saturday but they said since it is live that won’t be possible, so we will just work with the KPL programme.
-The only option is City Stadium; there is nothing fishy in this and I can assure that we are coming to Nairobi for the three points, he said.
At the start of the season, the Muhoroni Stadium, after inspection, was declared not equipped enough to host the match against Gor Mahia, which is listed under the ‘high risk’ games.
