Leopards aim to stamp out hooliganism



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards are planning to take their fight against hooliganism during the team’s matches a notch higher by installing surveillance cameras in stadia – the club’s chairman Alex Ole Magelo said.

The team, which boasts a big fan base in the Kenyan top flight, has in the past few seasons had problems with fan trouble and even though the hooliganism cases were at a minimum in the 2012 campaign, Ole Magelo wants to wipe the vice out completely.

He said as one of the oldest teams in Kenyan football, it was only imperative that they maintain a good image all through the season and admitted that the installation of cameras will go a long way in keeping unruly fans in check.

“AFC Leopards, by virtue of being one of the most senior teams in the country, have a role to play as far as promotion of the Kenyan game is concerned and as such we will not entertain hooliganism by a few disgruntled individuals who are just out to spoil the image of our great club during matches,” he said.

“As we approach the 2013 season’s kick off, I want to warn all those with ill motives that their days are numbered; we are seriously contemplating the installation of surveillance cameras in the stadia during our games so that we can pick out the trouble makers. This, I am sure, will go a long way in curbing the vice.”

Ingwe, who are scheduled to kick off their campaign with a clash against newly promoted Bandari FC, will be looking to better their third place finish last season.
