Gor Mahia has shifted its base and will host all its home matches at Bukhungu stadium in Kakamega. The coach did announce the shifting of their home fixtures from Nairobi county.
This did happen after previous chaos during a match they had held at Moi international sports center.
” We are moving our games to western Kenya in Kisumu or Narok. We already know that since the damages that we caused at Kasarani”, Ocholla said.
Confirming this, K’ Ogalo Ocholla said that the club made this decision following up the chaos made. This did happen two weeks ago at Kasarani.
” The sports stadium management wrote to us and wants us to bill the damages caused. We are to investigate those who did cause the fracas before we get back to Kasarani. They also want to see to it that we are serious in ending the acts of hooliganism. This is ought to happen before we use their facilities again”.
Mr. Ocholla did rule out Thika saying that the field was a bit rough. In addition, the club fears that its players will be exposed to injuries.
” However, in Nairobi, the fans who tend to come and watch our matches are few and want to watch the match for free. They did break the gates in Thika.
I can confirm that the rest of our matches will be in Kisumu Kakamega. We are going to work together with our branches to attract more fans which mean more income”. Ocholla did add.
Ocholla further noted that the body in charge of Kenyan stadiums sports stadia told the club management to pay Ksh. 1.2M. This money is to compensate for the damages caused.
Chaos did start during the first half break whereas Winnie Nyar Kasagam, whose real name is Sheryl Aluoch, was relatively seen carrying a huge stone on her right hand across the field.
