Batoto ba Mungu and Muhoroni Youth were facing axe from top flight after failing to comply with club licensing rules

Sofapaka veteran midfielder Moses 'Dube' Odhiambo is adamant they are ready to take part in this year's Kenyan Premier League.

Until Wednesday, the 2009 champions were in limbo concerning their participation, which was confirmed later in the day by the Sports Disputes Tribunal. The midfielder is happy that justice has finally been served.

"I welcome the ruling with both hands, it was clear on sporting merit we had qualified to take part in the league despite our struggles. The good thing is that we have been reinstated and we can fully focus on our game without having divided attention, our target being a positive and consistent run," 'Dube' told Goal.

"Yes, we are ready for the league and everyone is psyched up, and we want to start this weekend on a high note."

Batoto ba Mungu will start their campaign at home against Sony Sugar on Sunday.
