FKF calls off AFC Leopards vs Sony match
Football Kenya Federation has called off the Kenyan Premier League match pitting AFC Leopards and Sony Sugar that had been slated for this Saturday 12 May at Nyayo Stadium citing security reasons.
According to information sent from the FKF secretariat to KPL CEO Jack Oguda, the Federation has been convinced that ;
“No enough security has been guaranteed for the match as there is confusion on the actual office bearers due to the court injunctions”. “In view of the confusion, the federation is left with no choice but to cancel this match until further notice”.
The statement which is signed by FKF Chair Sam Nyamweya says that ;
“Resulting from the said court order and legal contention between the two factions, this encroaches a high security match which is bound to culminate in endangering people’s safety and lives of the bonafide custodians in the country, we are compelled by the prevailing circumstances to cancel this match until further notice”
The AFC Leopards management has been embroiled in tussles over the leadership of the club with Ssemi Aina and incumbent Alex Ole Magelo engaged in numerous court battles each claiming they are the legitimate chairman of the club.
