BY UPESI NEWS SPORTS,NAIROBI,3RD FEB2017-Kenyan football fraternity might have to wait much longer for 2017 season action as a fresh twist has come up that bars Football Kenya Federation from relegating Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka.
Upesinews can authoritatively reveal that in a document in our possession and signed by Vice Chairman Ambrose Rachier, Kenya Premier League states says that the two sides have not been dropped owing to the agreement dated back in 2015.
It reads ….This is to confirm that the above Kenya Premier League Clubs have not been relegated from the League and will continue to participate in the League during the 2017 season. This is in accordance with the Agreement dated 24 September 2015 entered into between the KPL and the Football Kenya Federation as held valid by the Sports Disputes Tribunal.
On Thursday 2 February 2017, FKF President Nick Mwendwa announced that Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka did not meet the mark even after resubmitting their documents with only Thika United getting the pass. On the same note, National Super League side KCB and Vihiga United earned top flight status to complete an 18-team League.
FKF and KPL have been at loggerheads but it all seemed to have cooled down with both sides agreeing on an 18-League team.
