Uasin Gishu teams have protested against delay in making decision in various pending matches in the Football kenya Federation (FKF) Division One Zone B league.
According to managers from three teams, they have claimed that Elimu FC, a team from Trans Nzoia has been highly favoured by top officials who have failed to deliver justice as the league heads into the homestretch.
Led by Langas Super Stars, Dela Sharks and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) managers, today in a press briefing in Eldoret complained Western region officials have failed to deliberate on various matches.
“We have had various walk over, forfeited matches, and abandoned matches,” said Langas manager, Langas team manager Jared Mageto who accused Elimu of frustrating their efforts to progress.
He said that Elimu officials deliberately failed to travel from the initial venue, Eldoret Sports club to Eldoret Showground, which is 2km apart.
Mageto claimed that Elimu is enjoying some privileges from the office and they are waiting for the final day to award points and benefit one team.
“We are concluding our league in two weeks time yet the officials have not ruled on a matter after three months. That is denying an opportunity to for teams to enjoy their dominance in the league. The late verdict will favour one team, disadvantaging another,” said Mageto.
Dela Sharks manager Oliver Kiptoo claimed that Elimu has been gaining points without playing in many matches.
He raised an issue where Elimu officials wanted to have armed police officers before they play their match in Eldoret.
“After all things had been done, they said they needed police officers with guns, loaded with bullets before they enter the field. The police had pistols but they rejected claiming they want an AK47 rifle full of bullets hence offending the police who decided to leave the play ground and such case has not been resolved three months down the line,” said Kiptoo.
