Some collapsed, while others fainted on the spot. First aiders were on the ground to help wherever they can to save lives.
The family of the five had left their home in a personal car to the stadium. Upon arrival at the stadium, one of the family members took photos of the scene and shared them with those who were left at home. Henry Mtuwa, a family member said that they called Suzan (one of the family members who died) after sometimes but her phone couldn’t be answered.
