He is aware that a court order barring the league body to release fixtures was thrown out on Thursday and while waiting for an official communication from the court, his office is already ‘fast-tracking’ the league commencement.

"We are yet to receive any court order following yesterday's (Thursday) hearing. Hopefully, the league will start by next week after a scheduled consultative meeting,” he told Goal.

The Sports Disputes Tribunal is also set to make a ruling concerning the fate of Muhoroni Youth, Sofapaka, KCB and Vihiga United on their league status for 2017 season.
