Mwendwa defends FKF's stand on KPL composition
Speaking in a press briefing held on Tuesday at the federation’s offices where he suspended the 2017 Kenyan Premier League, Mwendwa insisted that the two clubs will not be part of the league and that KCB and Vihiga United will replace them.

According to FKF, Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka failed to comply with Caf Club Licensing rule, a thing which cannot be changed having picked 'relegation' as the only repercussion for any club which never met the threshold.
“Different federations across the world implement consequences of club licensing differently; some of them deduct you points, some of them fine you, some of them relegate you.
“Here comes change and we are required to account for ourselves now. I was elected by Kenyans and I’m accountable to the football community of Kenyans.
Furthermore, he explained that the federation will open a disciplinary proceeding against top KPL officials including CEO Jack Oguda, Chairman James Musyoki, vice chairman Ambrose Rachier and Mathare United boss Bob Munro for fueling the ‘war’.
