AFC Leopards chairman Alex Ole Magelo has declared that his
team is ready to face Gor Mahia in the two sides’ Top 8 match that was called
off earlier in the season due to safety fears after the ill fated derby on Sunday
Magelo, says the tension that dominated events at the time
has now cooled down and as long as the tournament’s organisers can assure the
team of safety in the stadium he will give the all clear for the players to be
-We are ready for the game against Gor Mahia in the Top 8. At
first we were reluctant because the atmosphere was too tense for the game to go
on yet it is my responsibility to see that players are safe.
-If the tournament’s organisers can give us an assurance of
safety in the stadium we will gladly participate because the tension has cooled
down considerably, he told journalists at the team’s training ground at Moi
Magelo had earlier made an undertaking never to play Gor
Mahia again after the ugly scenes during the derby, which has adversely
affected the prestigious Top 8 tournament.
