FKF, KPL woes continues

Kenya Premier League (KPL) will be postponed to unknown date before kick off after Football Kenya federation (FKF) Chairman Nick Mwendwa suspended the start to resolve the mess currently affecting football fraternity.

Despite KPL releasing the fixture on Monday, FKF has suspended the start when two relegated teams-Sofapaka and Muhoroni  Youth were included in the fixture after they failed to meet the club’s licensing regualations together with the 16 team when Sports Dispute Tribunal had ruled that the 2017 league will consist of 18 teams.

FKF chief Nick Mwendwa further said unspecified “disciplinary action” has been instituted against KPL CEO Jack Oguda, club chairmen Bob Munro (Mathare United), Ambrose Rachier (Gor Mahia) and James Musyoki (Tusker) for their “hard-line stance” in the ongoing row between the federation and the league body over the expansion of the top tier.

FKF had promoted Vihiga United and KCB to the top tier following the relegation of Sofapaka and Muhoroni, but KPL stuck to their guns and quashed the order.

Mwendwa, who jetted back Monday night from Gabon where had gone to meet Caf chief Issa Hayatou over the 2018 Chan preparations, also said the federation will meet the KPL top brass on Wednesday in a meeting that will be moderated by the Sports Dispute Tribunal.
