Clubs win as KRU revokes league cancellation

Kenya Cup and KRU championships side lodged a successful appeal, forcing Kenya Rugby Union to revoke their decision of cancelling the season.

The clubs playing the top flight and second-tier complained of lack of consultation in cancelling the whole season but yesterday, KRU bowed to pressure to revoke the decision they made on April 9th with the leagues that were postponed on March 13 so as to meet government directives on social gathering in the war against coronavirus pandemic.

However, KRU Monday softened their stand conceding that “stakeholders prefer a scenario where the season comes to a conclusion once the Covid-19 situation and its various restrictions ease”.

“KRU and Clubs have thus agreed to form a consultative committee to develop various scenarios and timelines under which the season can be concluded all factors considered. With this in mind, the 2019/20 season then stands suspended and not cancelled as earlier communicated,” read a statement signed by KRU honorary secretary Ian Mugambi.
