Tragedy as AFC Leopards is Held to a Draw At Naivasha

This past Saturday, AFC Leopards was playing an away match, a Kenya Premier League fixture against Sher Karuturi at Naivasha.

As usual, the blue and white army descended on the Karuturi Sports Ground in Style. We even had this guy whom I suspect was some kind of juju man?

The blue and white army at the main stand of the Karuturi grounds follow the match closely.

The juju man joins the dancing crew!


The play was even in the first half, but in the second half we (AFC) dominated the game. We missed two clear-cut goals, which was painful to watch!

The match ended 0-0, and we got into our vehicles to begin the 1 and half hour journey back to Nairobi. Some fans were in a van, making merry, blowing vuvuzelas, hanging on it and generally in a good mood in spite of AFC Leopards getting just one point. For one, Gor had lost its match to Bandari FC 0-1, so what do you do when your football enemy loses their match?

Who says Kenyan footballers can't be handsome? Pako with a young fan at the end of the match.

Anyway, as the van joined the main road to Nairobi, they were hit by a lorry! The tragic accident caused 3 confirmed deaths, and about 7 others injured in hospital.

I take this chance to pass my condolences to the families of the deceased. May the blue soldiers rest in peace, and a speedy recovery to those still in hospital.

P.S. Please take time to view my video here and perhaps vote for it if you like it, thanks!

    Salaams Savvy. As a football fan, I though you would appreciate a recent video that came my way. Pretty amazing & worth sharing. Some amazing football skills from Desailly, Okocha and Bwalya accidentally caught on camera – http://bit.ly/od1UoV
