thumbnail Hello,

The team headed by Matthew Opwora has moved to court seeking to put to a halt the changes made to the document by club members during a SGM

AFC Leopards Chairman Alex Ole Magelo has rubbished a splinter group within the club that is seeking to block recent amendment of the new constitution.

The group led by Matthew Opwora has moved to court seeking to put to a halt the changes made to the document by club members during a Special General Meeting (SGM) held on January 26, 2012.

Opwora attempted to justify the court decision by stating that the audience at the Nyayo Stadium were not given an opportunity to review the document.

"I was not in attendance (at the Special General Meeting), but am told the document was hurriedly passed through without the club getting to know the exact details of what was to be changed."

"The Chairman wasn't even present during the SGM. That is not the way things should be done, something is a miss. I am acting as the watchdog and so won't allow this to happen," declared Opwora.

But Ole Magelo, who is in his second stint at the club hit back, dismissing Opwora as a 'broker' and 'someone who's integrity should be questioned'.

"I am not surprised, tell me something else?? This guys were the other day claiming to have taken over the club, now it's the constitution. Opwora was the treasurer of the same group when money was alleged to have disappeared from the club coffers. I believe he is working for someone," Magelo told Goal.com.

"But that still doesn't scare me. The SGM notice clearly stated the changes that were to be effected, and furthermore I was absent from the event with apologies," Magelo asserted.

The latest round of face off pitting the two sides is however, unlikely to affect the club's pre season schedule. Ingwe have lined up a friendly against KPL champions Tusker FC on Sunday ahead of the season proper that kicks-off on February 16.
