Hired goons out to disrupt Ulinzi vs AFC match-claims Bukachi
Newly elected AFC Leopards Secretary General Josephat Bukachi has called on fans to be extra vigilant during the Kenyan Premier League match pitting hosts Ulinzi FC and AFC Leopards game at Nakuru on Saturday afternoon. This is after the newly elected team got wind of what he claimed was a plot to disrupt the match by former ousted AFC Leopards officials.
According to Bukachi, several of the hired goons confided to them on how they had been paid and Nissans hired to ferry them to cause chaos during the match. Not willing to take any chance, Bukachi told michezoafrika.com that they had liaised with the host team and asked them to put in place adequate security measures to ensure all fans are safe.
“According to the some of the goons, three Nissans have been hired and will be used in ferrying them to the match venue with the intention of causing chaos. Of course this is disturbing news and we would take the earliest opportunity to categorically condemn such acts. We stand for peace and would like to urge the fans turning out to maintain the same and assure them that the host team has put in elaborate security measures to ensure they are safe. Anyone with the intention of causing chaos will be dealt with accordingly as per the laws.” said Bukachi.
A contingent of confirmed four hundred AFC leopards fans have already bought tickets and will be travelling from Nairobi for the encounter.After beating Posta Rangers 3-1 last week,Ingwe will be out to prove that was no fluke when they face the defending champions.
Only last week, former chairman Julius Ochiel and his secretary general Robert Asembo were met with hostile reception at the City Stadium during the AFC Leopards’ vs. Rangers Match.
The two officials had to run for their dear lives under heavy missiles from the infuriated fans that descended on them with slaps, kicks, blows and all manners of nasty insults.
