On October 15, 2011, AFC Leopards held Karuturi Sports to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford Stadium in Naivasha in a KPL match. Later that evening, a vehicle carrying some fans and striker Francis Chinjili was involved in a road accident. Three fans, namely Ben Amuko, Duncan Asila and Aineah Maliotso, were later confirmed dead. I was at the horrific scene that night.  A sad tragic night in the Den. I wrote this tribute to them.

Ainea, one of those who perished

Ingwe collected one point in Naivasha
But sadly lost three precious Leopards
It is with horror, shock and in tears
That we mourn after confirming our fears

And with deep regret that we announce
The passing away of our brothers
The unfortunate loss of leopard lives
The demise of die-hard football fans

It is a very sad day for AFC Leopards
In respect, let us all have a silent moment
After an entertaining match with no incident
The day had to end with a road accident

We pass our condolences to the bereaved
We wish speedy recovery to the badly injured
You are in our prayers; and for the deceased
May God rest their souls in eternal peace

RIP Leopards.
