A man has lost his life after a football match between Chelsea and Arsenal on Saturday, January 19, which ended with the former losing to the latter.
The dead victim identified as Martin Waweru died on the morning of Thursday, January 24, (yesterday) in hospital following injuries sustained after he was allegedly shot by a police officer who was angered after his favourite team, Chelsea, lost.
Waweru and the AP officer were in the company of other fans at a local club in Murang’a, Kenya, when the officer picked up a quarrel with some of them after the team lost, Daily Nation reported.
The deceased left the bar shortly afterwards to take home a loaf of bread and fish he had bought for his family.
The officer then hurriedly walked past him towards the camp only to return with a gun and shoot him.
“Upon reaching where I was, he ordered me to lie down and I obeyed,” Waweru narrated hours before succumbing to gunshot wounds. “He then shot me three times at the back on my waist, above my back and on my hand and dragged me to the police camp and forced me to drink water while I was bleeding,” he added.
According to him, a scuffle ensued between the officer attached to the Muruka AP Camp and other locals prompting him to leave the bar to go get his gun.
“Locals who were on their way home tried to assist me but all was in vain as the officer with two others thwarted their efforts to have me taken to hospital in a car insisting that I had to be ferried by a police van,” added Waweru.
Waweru’s wife, Rose Muthoni, claimed the officer confessed to having shot her husband but she feared her family would not get justice since the officer has been transferred.
Kandara OCPD Wilson Kosgey said he started investigations and was waiting for the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (Ipoa) to take over the matter.
Former Chelsea and England captain John Terry has announced his playing days are over at the age of 37.
The defender, who spent last season with Aston Villa after 22 years at Stamford Bridge, had been without a club since leaving Villa Park in the summer and is now expected to pursue a career in management.
Terry, who joined Chelsea at the age of 14, went on to become captain of the club under Jose Mourinho, winning five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Europa League and one UEFA Champions League title before finally departing in 2017.
He announced his decision to retire via his Instagram page, saying that “after 23 incredible years” it was now the “right time” to hang up his boots.

Eden Hazard believes it is too early to discuss Chelsea’s Premier League title chances
Hazard scored one goal and created another in a 3-0 win at Southampton as Chelsea leapfrogged Manchester City and Liverpool,
Hazard is enjoying a rich vein of form while the ‘Blues’ are much improved under Maurizio Sarri this term, but he is not getting carried away just yet.
“It’s too early to be thinking about the title – we know it is tough to win,” Hazard told ‘Sky Sports’. “But it is good to be up there.
“We’ll maybe watch Liverpool and Manchester City on the bus.”
On how he is finding life under Sarri, the forward added: “We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals.
“The first half was not so easy [at Southampton]. They missed big chances and then we have had a bit of luck for our first goal, but we controlled the match in the second half.
“I don’t know if I’ve played better – I’m just playing good football because we are playing good football. I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy.”
Ross Barkley impressed in Chelsea’s latest win, scoring his first goal for the club, and Hazard was pleased to see his team-mate’s hard work in training rewarded.
“[Barkley] is playing well, he scored and made an assist,” Hazard said. “He is doing well and working hard on the training ground.”

Former Arsenal player, Olivier Giroud, has admitted that he has not done enough to help Chelsea since signing from Arsenal in January.
Since moving over to the side of London, Giroud has scored just once for his new club, failing to find the back of the net in seven Premier League appearances.
The France international netted over 100 goals in 253 games for the Gunners and admits he is frustrated not to have started his Chelsea career more positively.
Giroud told L’Equipe, “I am happy with my adaptation, the welcome I received, the relationship on the ground with my partners.
“But, that could have, it should have, been more goals. In terms of statistics, I am very attached to this, I remain stuck at one goal and three assists. It is sure that it is not enough, but in time I will do it.
“If I signed to Chelsea, it’s to have a new challenge. I knew there was going to be a wait.
“When you sign like that in January, it’s never easy because you have to acclimatize to your team.
“But I really wanted to be ready right away, even though I was coming back from almost six weeks of injury. It was a little paradoxical.”
