Following presidential order number 2 on Friday, Kenya Handball Federation (KHF) has cancelled their league that resumed a week ago.
KHF director Charles Omondi said through a statement he regretted the move to halt the league, adding it was in line with efforts to support the government in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
KHF transferred the matches to the venue from Kaloleni Handball Court where the league had previously pitched camp for the past two seasons.
The women’s league witnessed its penultimate round on March 20 where reigning champions Nairobi Water Queens registered an emphatic win over Nanyuki with National Cereals and Produce Boards (NCPB) seeing off Kenyatta University a day later.
In the men’s competition, former champions Black Mamba took off on a high note with back-to-back wins over Thika and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.
Defending champions Nairobi Water were well on their way to reclaiming the title as they sat pretty at the summit on 16 points from eight wins, a narrow two-point advantage over second placed NCPB who had played nine matches for 7 wins.
