Kenyan football is set to take another twist after it emerged that four officials of Kenyan Premier League Limited will be handed indefinite bans.

“It is true that four top officials will receive their letters tomorrow (Monday). FKF are tired of KPL’s tough stand on whether to expand the league to 18 teams from 16 and they have decided to act. The decision to ban the four as also received the backing of Fifa because they have been monitoring the situation in the country.”

The source further revealed that the four will be summoned to appear before Football Kenya Federation’s Disciplinary committee starting this week. “They will be required to appear before the committee for further grilling and both will have specific dates and time to appear before the same committee.”

The scuffle started way back in 2016 when the idea of expanding the country’s topflight league was tabled by Football Kenya Federation. Kenyan Premier League Limited swiftly opposed the idea but as if they were almost striking a truce, another problem arose when Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka were ‘relegated’ for failing to comply with Caf Club Licensing rule.

KPL are openly defending the two clubs, a thing which has forced the federation to crack the whip.
