Kenya FA now pardons expelled Leopards' and Gor Mahia duo Were and Omondi

Nyamweya says no further action will be meted on the two players who were kicked out of of Stars' camp and asks respective clubs to respect move
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) will not take any further action on youngsters Paul Were and Kevin Omondi after they were expelled from national team Harambee Stars camp for gross misconduct.

Kenya FA President Sam Nyamweya revealed to that they had forgiven the duo since "they have asked to be pardoned."

“We have decided to pardon them and give them another chance. The federation will not be taking any further disciplinary action on the players as earlier announced and they remain available for national team selection in future because they are still our sons and among the best players we have in the country, so their presence in the national team would still be crucial in future."

"We want this issue to come to and end and would like to request the media and the duo's respective clubs to keep off the matter from now on and stop condemning the duo."

Were (AFC Leopards) and Omondi (Gor Mahia) were kicked out of camp by coach James Nandwa for alleged indiscipline on Tuesday.

After the two had been kicked out, Nyamweya promised to take further action on the players when they return home. “We have indefinitely suspended the two players from the national team and we are going to punish them more in their club football as well so that it can act as a lesson to the rest," said Nyamweya.

Later the two players through the media asked Kenyans to pardon them for the wrongs they had done. AFC Leopards chairman Ole Magello had on Thursday hinted at releasing Were saying the club has had enough of the striker's antics.

"At some point we have to say enough is enough. This player (Were) has really let himself down. Unfortunately the club's technical bench has had to persevere with this behavior for sometime. We have been talking to him hoping that he will change but to no avail," Magelo was quoted.

'Immediately he comes back (from Kampala), he should contact me because we need a well documented explanation of what exactly happened, thereafter depending on what he says, we might be forced to cut our losses and release him. We fear he could be a negative influence to the rest of the squad members."
