What you need to know:
- Just when we thought Gor Mahia are on the verge of glory, a handful of fools out with their apelike agenda ruin the whole parade
- How many times shall we be put in the position of spewing vitriol upon such a throng?
It is like hitting our heads upon asphalt pavements! It is a thankless task but it still is our charge as the mouthpiece of Kenyan football to castigate in the strongest terms whatever goes on with the so-called ‘Green Army’.
That horde went on the rampage again and the mayhem they caused is worse than any form of impunity that this country can stomach.
Just when we thought Gor Mahia are on the verge of glory; just when we celebrate their brilliance, a handful of fools out with their apelike agenda ruin the whole parade.
It is a pity that the ‘Green Army’ is easily the best fan base in Kenya and at the same time, is eaten to the core with maggots straight from the Jurassic era; a militia that has no inkling of what really takes it to the stadium; a posse so rotten such that it wishes to spread its malignant bacteria upon the face of the whole society.
It is a den of irrational beings who seek to take advantage of a crowd to hide its own internal frustrations whether they are individual or collective band of idiots. Time and again the group has acted as if it is some occupying army that knows neither law nor humanity.
We have documented cases of narrow foreheads attacking hawkers in markets on their way to the stadium; we have noted a group that only seeks disorder; an assemblage that at best was left in the primeval forest from whence humanity evolved; a cluster that has only developed physically but whose brain is tabula rasa; a shameless crowd.
How many times shall we be put in the position of spewing vitriol upon such a throng? For how long must the whole country whisper saying: “there go the fools.” It is a worrisome trend and the rotten core of K’Ogalo must be uprooted even though its roots be at the heart of the club.
Those who act most recklessly in the sporadic orgy of violence “for the club” must realise that they are of a bygone era; a remnant of a parentage that never instilled any respect; a wild weed of children that grew up without any rules, untamed and dim-witted. What club can be proud of such trash in its middle?
During the GOtv Shield semi-finals at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, Gor Mahia were playing Sony Sugar. The match was theirs and all knew the same. They won in the end on post-match penalties and instead of celebrating their win, the goons unleashed terror on Sony players and officials.
Their main targets were Sony custodian Wycliffe Kasaya and defender Andrew Waiswa, who suffered serious head injuries. Sony team doctor, Mark Chinda, said the two will need a month to heal. Osuya’s only ‘mistake’ was saving a penalty in regulation time, which angered the ‘Green Army’. Ooh no, no goalkeeper is supposed to save a penalty against Gor Mahia; the rowdy ‘Green Army’ will come after you!
Other Sony players affected were Moses Arita, Steve Biko, Charles Odete and team manager Paul Olik. How can even a base person as Adolf Hitler ever stoop to that level? Of what aid was that folly to Gor Mahia as a team?
We assume some of their fathers are hissing in dark corners: “Gigoye... (They’ve punished him)” and are thrilled by the fourth generation stupidity. They may be getting high-fives from their peers but they are just a dim lot that will block the team from ever rising to its intended greatness. Their action was, is and shall be forever unacceptable to civilisation.
