Muhoroni ultra ‘Jojo’ banned from KPL games

MUHORONI-YOUTHNAIROBI, May 22 – Muhoroni Youth ultra fan, George Odhiambo Onyango, alias ‘Jojo’, has been banned for one year from attending Kenyan Premier League (KPL) matches and the club slapped with a Sh324,000 (USD 3, 331.16) fine for crowd trouble.

Onyango was sanctioned by the Leagues Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC) for hooliganism acts in their home match against Western Stima on April 15 in Muhoroni.

The fine to the club is payable in 14 days after they were punished for failing to control their fans who assaulted some of Western Stima officials and destroyed property.

“Muhoroni Youth failed to control its fans during the KPL Match No. 67 who as a result assaulted some officials of Western Stima and damaged their property.

“We order Muhoroni Youth to pay damages to Western Stima for the damaged or lost property belonging to its officials in the sum of Sh124, 000 within 14 days from the date of this decision,” IDCC said in a statement.

“The Committee further orders a ban of George Odhiambo Onyango AKA Jojo from all KPL matches for a period of one year effective from the date of this decision. Muhoroni Youth shall co-operate with KPL, and other clubs or security teams to ensure adherence to this order.

“In the event of any breach thereof, any affected person is at liberty to refer to this committee for review or further orders,” IDCC ruled.

IDCC, chaired by Prof. Migai Akech, ordered KPL’s Security and Safety Committee to visit and review the suitability of the Muhoroni venue in line with concerns raised and table a report by June 22.

Muhoroni who host champions and log leaders, Gor Mahia on Sunday won the match in question 1-0 but victory was overshadowed by ugly scenes of crowd trouble after the match.
