Caf slaps FKF with fine over crowd trouble in Stars match

 The Confederation of African Football has slapped the Football Kenya Federation with a fine of USD 10,000(approximately Sh. 1 million) for crowd trouble witnessed during the Africa Cup of Nation qualifier match pitting Kenya against Guinea Bissau in Nairobi on March 17.

The match was marred by crowd trouble in the second half after   Stars players led by goalkeeper Arnold Origi protested the Bissau goal.

The fans in the terraces reacted by hurling crude weapons onto the pitch causing stoppage for close to 25 minutes.

In its communiqué to the federation, Caf warned that such future occurrences could attract harsh penalties with Stars being forced to play their home matches on neutral grounds. 

“In case a similar incident occurs, the team may play on neutral ground/without spectators or at a different stadium,” CAF said in its warning.
