Well, a 16-year-old Manchester United fan who was accused of killing Richard Odhiambo, an Arsenal supporter after his team lost has been sentenced to three years’ probation by the Siaya High Court.
According to the police report, the two were heading home after watching a football match, in which Arsenal beat arch rivals Manchester United 2-0 in May this year.
An argument ensued between the two football fans and the 16-year-old who had a stick, hit Odhiambo on the head and he became unconscious. The deceased was rushed to his parents home by other children who then decided to take him to hospital but unfortunately, he died as he was being rushed to the hospital.

The child offender deserves non-custodial sentence under the law thus since he is above 15 years, I shall place him under probation for a period of three years under the supervision of the probation office in Siaya County,” said the magistrate.
