On Friday 14 September, Football Kenya Federation and Kenyan Premier League officials held a pre-event meeting to assess the security arrangements ahead of the Saturday 15 match between Western Stima and AFC Leopards.
The evaluation process, a procedure set out for all ‘high-risk’ matches was conducted at 0900hrs, with officials from both clubs in attendance.
-Initially there were only 20 police officers assigned to
take charge at the match, but we requested the Officer Commanding Police Division
[OCPD], said an FKF communication officer.
-For crowd control, the OCPD confirmed that his charges will bring along dogs. They would have provided horses, but unfortunately the notice was short, as they have to be ferried from Gilgil.
The match will kick off at 1500hrs.
