6 Injured in Kericho Ahead of Mashujaa Celebrations

A stampede occurred at Kericho Green Stadium, resulting in the injury of at least six individuals, one of whom is a minor.

The incident transpired at Gate C of the stadium, where thousands of eager residents clamored to access the venue, with some arriving as early as 1 a.m.

The commotion was sparked by the anticipation of the upcoming Mashujaa fete, which is set to be presided over by President William Ruto.

It is worth noting that this region exhibited strong support for Ruto in the previous year’s elections, potentially explaining the fervor surrounding his visit.

The injured victims, numbering six in total, have been swiftly transported to Kericho County Referral Hospital to receive necessary medical treatment. This unfortunate incident serves as a stark reminder of the need for careful planning and crowd control measures during public events to ensure the safety of attendees.
