Gor will have to pay Sports Kenya Ksh.1,475,000 for the damaged seats while the wooden panels have been priced at Ksh.20,000
Gor Mahia have been slapped with Ksh.1,995,000 bill for the damaged property at the Kasarani Stadium last weekend.
Chaos were witnessed last Saturday when Gor played debutants Murang’a Seal to a barren draw at the facility.
The acts of hooliganism are said to have been triggered by the sub-par officiating with Benson Omala’s disallowed goal being the major cause for the unfortunate incident.
According to Sports Kenya, the body in charge of government-owned stadiums, a total of 295 seats were damaged with 12 PWD wooden panels and four electrical panels vandalized.
Gor will have to pay Sports Kenya Ksh.1,475,000 for the damaged seats while the wooden panels have been priced at Ksh.20,000. The damaged electrical panes cost Gor half a million shillings.
Seal, in a letter to the federation, claimed that their fans and a player who was at the stands were assaulted by the hooligans and called for action to be taken.
It was also reported by that security men suffered bodily harm while both teams and the officials had to wait for more than hour in the dressing rooms for calm to be restored.
In a letter to Gor chairman Ambrose Rachier that was copied to the Cabinet Secretary for Sports Ababu Namwamba, Principal Secretary to the state department Wesley Korir, and the Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa, K’Ogalo have been directed to pay the amount to facilitate repair works.
Should Gor fail to pay the amount, the club will not be allowed to use any facility that falls under the wings of Sports Kenya.
Besides paying for the damaged property, Gor will be expected to submit a plan for curbing future incidences without fail.
“Gor Mahia will be required to submit an elaborate plan of action on how the club will be able to contain such actions from their fans. Failure to do so, Sports Kenya will have no option but to deny fans entry during your matches,” added the letter.
