A Kenyan fan who supports Liverpool was stabbed to death at Makutano Shopping Centre in Meru town by an agitated Arsenal counterpart after they allegedly disagreed over the outcome of Saturday’s English Premier League match played at Anfield.
According to Kenyan newspaper People Daily, Imenti North police boss Tom Odero said David Mwangi (a boda boda operator) stabbed 25 year-old Anthony Mutethia on the chest.
“He was pronounced dead on arrival at Meru Level Five Hospital. The assailant ran away but his motorbike was taken to the police station by Makutano residents,” said Odero.
However, reports from revellers of an entertainment joint at Makutano revealed the two started arguing at the closing moments of the match. They alleged that Mwangi got bitter after Mutethia started mocking him and on their way out, the argument got nasty prompting him to stab the former.
“He was also drinking beer as the game proceeded and because Mutethia was also a bit drunk they could not have come to terms over their argument. This is just a game for entertainment and he should not have got so tempered,” said a reveller, who had accompanied Mutethia.
