Kenya Premier League leaders Gor Mahia on Thursday left its followers amused after its admin brilliantly threw shade at archrivals AFC Leopards on Twitter.

K’Ogalo who are top of the log with two matches to go joked that Twitter’s expansion of characters to 280 from a maximum of 140 had enabled them “clearly see” their competition –Leopards.

Gor, who have already been crowned the 2017 champions, currently have 70 points; AFC sit 12th with a paltry 39 points.

The two teams represent Kenya’s most vicious football rivalry in what is popularly known as mashemeji derby.


Once considered the two best teams in KPL, AFC’s better days seem to be behind them with Gor’s competition in recent years coming from other teams including Posta Rangers (2nd) and Tusker (3rd).

The jibe has been retweeted and liked more than 800 times.

Citizen TV sports anchor Bernard Ndong said he suspected that the Gor Mahia account was run by Tom Bwana.

But the club immediately responded, “In our streets they say Utajua Haujui.”

Gor supporter Tim Oderoh ‏added: “You should see them when the league commences,chest thumbing and declaring to the whole world on who owns the league and who will finish top.”

But a disgruntled user said: “Stop competing with efusi go win the intercontinental cups like kina Peter Dawo. Beat the likes of Al ahly and Raja Casablanca. Until then you are still village heroes.”
