Thursday, January 27, 2022 – Popular Harambee Stars fan, Isaac Juma, who was a constant presence in the stands when the national team was playing, was brutally murdered by unknown people at his rural home in Kakamega on Wednesday night.
According to police reports, a machete-wielding gang first approached his animal den and when he heard the sheep bleating, he moved out of his house in the company of his son and brother to see what was happening.
The ruthless gang confronted him and cut him several times on the head, killing him on the spot before fleeing.
His brother and son managed to run away during the night attack.
Mumias West Sub-County Police Commander, Stephen Muoni, has confirmed the tragic incident.
“The family was in the house when at around 11 pm, they heard sheep bleating from the animals’ den.
“He alerted his brother and son and when he went out, he was met with a panga-wielding gang that attacked and killed him on the spot,” he said.
His body lay in a pool of blood outside his house before it was moved to the mortuary by police officers.
The police boss said the motive of the attackers was not to steal livestock but to kill.
Juma has been an ardent fan of Harambee Stars and AFC Leopards for decades.
He used to be seen dancing shirtless with his upper body painted, during major soccer matches and other popular sporting events.
Besides his love for football, he was a newspaper vendor in Nakuru Town where he stayed alone.
He is survived by two wives and ten children who live in Mumias.
ANC leader, Musalia Mudavadi, is among the leaders who have mourned the deceased football fan.
“I am saddened by the death of our @AFCLeopards& @Harambee__Starsardent fan, Isaac Juma.
“The late was an ever-present face on the terraces working up fans and his energy was a motivation to the boys in the pitch.
“May his family, friends and relatives find peace, as his soul RIP,” Mudavadi wrote.
