A KENYAN soccer fan jumped to his death after Manchester United’s loss to Newcastle over the weekend, a senior Kenyan police official said on Monday.
John Macharia, 28, plunged to his death from the seventh floor of an apartment block in Nairobi after David Moyes’ men suffered a second home defeat in four days, leaving the champions’ chances of retaining their Premier League title in tatters.
“Macharia jumped from seventh floor of an apartment at Pipeline Estate after realising that his team Manchester United lost 1-0 to Newcastle at Old Trafford and committed suicide,” Nairobi’s County Police Commander Benson Kibui said.
Newcastle’s first win at Old Trafford since February 1972 means the champions are now 13 points adrift of Premier league leaders Arsenal.
Macharia’s death is reminiscent of the suicide by a Kenyan Arsenal fan in 2009. Suleiman Omondi, 29, was found hanging in his flat after the Gunners were trounced 3-1 by Manchester United in the second leg of a Champions League semi-final game.
Kibui urged soccer-obsessed Kenyan fans to support local teams rather than foreign clubs, adding: “The football fans should enjoy the matches.
“But they should not commit suicide since life is very precious.”
