Stadium ban for Gor Mahia
The Sports Stadia Management board (SSMB) has cracked the whip on Gor Mahia banning the club from accessing both Nyayo Stadium and Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.
The move comes after last weekend’s violence during their clash against archrivals AFC Leopards that saw the match held up for 26 minutes.
The decision was reached on Friday and announced by the board's chairman Retired general Daniel Opande.
However the decision was not well received by Gor Mahia who have termed the decision as harsh.
A Gor Mahia official who sought anonymity intimated to SuperSport.com that they would seek an appointment with top government officials to try and sort out the issue.
"The decision taken against Gor Mahia is very harsh and it amounts to witch hunting. We cannot take the decision lying down since it will affect our plans and revenue collections."
"We have booked an appointment with government officials to explain our side of the story and get a reprieve since everyone is ganging up against us and yet we had acknowledged the mistakes," the source said.
The ban leaves Gor with City Stadium which can barely hold its large fan base.
