Kenyan Premier League (KPL) has insisted that the league is still suspended until further notice due to coronavirus pandemic.
The KPL, which runs the top flight football in the country has dismissed Nick Mwendwa, the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President after ending the league on Thursday.
According to KPL CE Jack Ogunda, the league was suspended in March after the government’s directive banning the use of public sporting facilities.
“As we reluctantly take note of your communication regarding FKF’s decision to end the KPL 2019/20 season prematurely, we once again wish to reiterate our position on this matter which we stated before. It is still our insistence that any decision concerning the status and the fate of the league should be made by the Kenyan Premier League as we are the body mandated to run the Kenyan Premier League,” Oguda wrote.
“FKF’s decision to end the league, without consulting the Kenyan Premier League, contravenes various clauses in the FKF-KPL Agreement and the SDT Ruling on the FKF-KPL Agreement
“The agreement is clear on the obligations of KPL and FKF in as far as management of the Kenyan Premier League is concerned and, therefore, KPL would like clarification on which organ within FKF’s structure met, deliberated, and made a decision regarding the status of the league.”
