He said five of them are stable and getting treatment, and the other two, who have critical conditions and are unstable, are still being worked on well.

Wycliffe Mugume Munyizi, the chairperson for Kitara FC fans, confirmed the accident. He attributed the accident to the over-speeding of the fans after winning the game against Bright Stars in Masindi.
