Muhoroni Youth chairman says the sugar millers are preparing for new season and that they are in the top flight to stay

Chairman Moses Adagala has once again hit out at Football Kenya Federation over decision to relegate Thika United, Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth.

Two weeks ago, FKF announced that the three clubs will not take part in top flight league after failing to comply with club licensing rules. Adagala says his club is preparing for the new season like other teams and that they are in KPL to stay.

"We are all aware that KPL is a private company and it is not run by FKF, so who gave the federation powers to relegate teams? As a matter of fact, Muhoroni is in the league to stay. We will comply with the club licensing but about relegation we are surprised,” Adagala told Goal.

"We have even received our monthly grant from KPL and I am laughing when I hear someone saying we are relegated. There are clear guidelines about relegation and demotion and rules should be applied in a proper manner."
