FKF have 'forgiven' top Kenyan Premier League officials 'for the betterment of football'

Football Kenya Federation have pardoned top Kenyan Premier League Limited officials, President Nick Mwendwa has confirmed.

On February 20, the federation labeled four offenses on KPL CEO Jack Oguda, Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier, Mathare United boss Bob Munro and  the then Tusker chairman James Musyoki and summoned them to appear before the federation’s Independent Disciplinary Committee.

However, after a Joint Executive Committee (JEC) meeting between FKF and KPL held on Monday April 10, the federation have decided to mend relations between the two bodies for the betterment of the country's football.

“We have all agreed that the relationship between KPL and FKF has fallen short in the last one year and have decided to craft a new agreement that captures the correct position of both parties in order to mitigate against any possible fallout in the future.”

“Further in the spirit of reconciliation FKF has decided to mute all charges that had been levied against three individuals from KPL, for bringing the game into disrepute,”  Mwendwa told the federation’s official web-portal.

This development comes hand-in-hand with FKF's announcement that they are trying to persuade SuperSport, who terminated their contract with Kenyan Premier League Limited last week, to reinstate their services in the country.
