 “I have ordered that the league must kick-off on or before 25th February without the 4 teams. The rest can join the league after the decision of the tribunal.”

This reiteration comes as a response to Kenyan Premier League Limited’s statement which marked that date for DStv Super Cup encounter with league kick-off being pushed to March 5.

Vice Chairman Ambrose Rachier had explained that they will not start without a complete league composition.
