And FKF President Nick Mwendwa has now promised to take action against the club, who were the home team. “It is very shameful and unacceptable," FKF boss Mwendwa told on Monday.

“We have asked AFC Leopards to produce the hooligans who beat the referee in broad daylight. I am very appalled because for a while this behavior of beating referees in the Kenyan league had gone. AFC Leopards were the home team and must have to do their job by producing the culprits.”

Ingwe have struggled this season and have only managed a single win from six matches.
