Gor Mahia FC vice chairman Faiz Ochieng has revealed a conspiracy by a certain group of people to cause violence and unpleasant scenes during Sunday 18 March derby game between the team and AFC Leopards at the Nyayo National Stadium.

Torch the buses

The official, who is standing in for the club’s chairman Mr. Ambrose Rachier who is out of the country said he has stumbled on some intelligence that there is a group of people planning to torch the buses of the two teams during the game.

Speaking to futaa.com, Faiz warned all those planning to cause the unpleasant scenes that they should just keep off the stadium altogether and asked football lovers to grace the game for there will be enhanced security.

-I have reliable information that some people, high ranking people in the country have ill motives ahead of this game. I know there is a plan being hatched to burn the buses of the two teams and as the home team Gor Mahia is in charge of security and we won’t allow that.

-I am speaking on behalf of the chairman who is out of the country and I’d like to warn all people with ill motives to keep off the stadium premises because we know their intentions. They should also remember that as the home team we reserve the right of admission, if we feel you have bad intentions, we will lock you out. However, I am calling on all the football lovers to come and watch the game peacefully, he said.

Security issues have always been the quagmire in games involving these two clubs, which have the biggest following in the country and are also the most successful. Last year, violent scenes erupted during the FKL Cup semi final involving the two sides, causing the abandonment of the game, with Gor Mahia leading at the time.
