Tragedy has struck the football community as Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) side Shabana FC mourns the loss of one of its most dedicated fans, Duke Mokua Makoyo. 

Fondly remembered for his unwavering loyalty and fervent cheers, Makoyo's sudden passing on Wednesday has left the entire sports community mourning and seeking answers about the circumstances of his death.

Details surrounding the demise of Duke Mokua Makoyo remain shrouded in mystery, intensifying the sense of loss that has swept through Shabana and its supporters.

 Known for his vibrant presence at every match, Makoyo was a true embodiment of devotion, rarely ever missing a game and consistently boosting the spirits of the team players with his infectious enthusiasm from the stands.

Shabana, through an official statement, expressed their deep sadness and extended their sympathies to Makoyo's family and the broader Bosamaro community.
