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 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?
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.
