HomeSportsFootball Football Seven dead in Kenya football stampede

The highy-billed Premier League clash between perennial rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards turned tragic after seven fans died following a stampede at Nyayo Stadium Saturday.

Football Kenya official Frank Okoth said the stampede was caused by fans, who did not have match tickets but attempted to force their way into the stadium.

“This game has surprised everybody,” said Okoth at half-time when he spoke on pay TV Supersport that was televising the match.

“There were so many fans outside who attempted to force their way into the stadium but they did not have match tickets.”

According to the FKL official, the rowdy fans then brought down a gate.

“In the process, some fell down and they were trampled upon by other fans,” he said.

“We have heard that six people have died but we leave to the medical people to confirm.”

Police, however, put the number of dead at seven, shortly after the Premier League clash started at around 7.10 p.m.
