Naivasha road tragedy toll rises

The death toll in the AFC Leopards road tragedy increased to three after two more fans succumbed to death in Naivasha.

Club acting secretary General Duncan Angode who spent the night at the Naivasha District Hospital confirmed to SuperSport.com that the death toll now stands at three.

Four of the victims were rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital on Saturday night after their condition worsened while two others were set to be airlifted to Nairobi later Sunday.

Angode confirmed two of the victims who succumbed to death hail from Nakuru while the other one comes from Nairobi’s AFC Leopards Kibera branch.

The victims were involved in a grisly road accident after their Kenya Premier League (KPL) tie against Karuturi Sports that ended in a barren draw.

A van hired by Leopards fans collided with a lorry at Mai Mahiu on their way to Nairobi after the match where several victims were rushed to Naivasha District Hospital.

AFC Leopards striker Francis Chinjili who was in the same vehicle miraculously escaped without a scratch.
