Former Asante Kotoko board chairman Herbert Mensah has shown much concern in remembering the victims of the May 9 stadium disaster in 2001.
The tragedy, the worst to be recorded in Africa, saw 126 fans die at the Accra Sports Stadium during the league match between rivals Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.
It was during the tenure of Mensah when the incident occurred and it was double agony after Kotoko lost the match 2-1 courtesy a pair of goals by Hearts of Oakâ€™s Ishmael Addo.
He is leading activities to mark the day in Kumasi and spoke emotionally about the importance of
â€œThe most important people in football is not the football administrators, players, coaches but supporters,â€ Mensah told Nhyira FM
â€œIf we don't constantly remember this day and give the perished souls the respect, it would not be good for our football.â€
Mensah wants to use Fridayâ€™s walk to raise funds to support families of the deceased.
