Muhoroni Sugar have been fined Sh500,000 even as the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) set up a committee to audit a list of players it submitted to the company.

According to KPL Chief Executive Officer (Ceo) Jack Oguda, the club will also know their fate on Wednesday after the audit is completed. The audit is being done by a committee chaired by Gor Mahia boss Ambrose Rachier.

"We have ordered for a thorough audit of the list submitted to the KPL so as to authenticate its validity. We will not hesitate to take further action if the list is found to have discrepancies,” Oguda exclusively told

Last week, exclusively reported how the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) had barred the team from participating in the 2013 premier league for alleged incomplete registration of players.

In a signed statement, Oguda directed that Muhoroni Youth lodges a complain with the Indepedent Disciplinary Appeals Committee (IDCC) for further direction on the same.

"Further to our letter dated February 8, 2013 regarding the above noted subject, we regret to inform you that in accordance with the KPL Status and Transfer players policy, you only had five (5) players validly registered from the previous registration for 2012 as at the closing date of mid night January 31, 2013. This means you have no team to participate in the 2013 league season."

"The issue here is late submission, incomplete and unsigned documents, possible forged signatures and in some cases altered contract forms that were not validated by the concerned players and the club. All clubs were sent 30 standard KPL contract forms and you are therefore, wrong to state that you had less forms."

The statement from Oguda added, "For reasons stated above therefore, we are unable to process the late submitted ptayers’ contracts forms that legally are time barred."

"We therefore, direct that you lodge your complaint to the Independent Disciplinary Si Appeals Committee (Idcc) who will give direction how to go about your case, which unfortunately has thrown the exercise in to total disrepute even after the company committed funds for the training of club officials."
