Kenyan police have been urged to borrow a leaf  from their Ugandan counterparts when it comes to securing sports venues.

This after pictures of Uganda police screening fans at the Namboole Stadium ahead of Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations tie against Burkina Faso went viral on social media.

Some of the photos, courtesy of Bukeede newspaper, show police grabbing fans’ private parts.

“Are Kenyan police watching this…” Simon maxi Mutua wrote on Facebook.

While Uganda’s match ended without a single reported incident, Kenya’s game against Guinea Bissau on Sunday afternoon was stopped for half an hour, with police battling unruly fans who were pelting missiles onto the pitch.

Some of the missiles included water bottles that fans had carried into the stadium.
