Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa has reprimanded the acts of hooliganism witnessed during a match between Gor Mahia against AFC Leopards last weekend at the MISC Kasarani.

The Kenyan Premier League match witnessed a 10-minute stoppage as fans expressed their disapproval with Gor Mahia’s second goal through destruction of the Stadium’s facilities.

“We are doing a lot as a Federation to lobby for better infrastructure. It is thus disappointing that we witnessed the destruction of the only facility we have for high-level international matches,” Mwendwa said on FKF’s official website.

“We have written to the Kenyan Premier League to take necessary action,” he added.

The MISC Kasarani stadium is the only facility fit to host High-level international matches and is in line to host the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier pitting Kenya against Ghana on September 8, 2018.

The Harambe Stars will be looking to record their first win in their qualifying group (Group F) having lost 2-1 to Sierra Leone away last year.

While Ghana thumped Ethiopia 5-0 at home in their maiden Group F match.
