On Thursday, FKF president Nick Mwendwa confirmed to Goal the Kenyan top-flight will not resume again after being affected by the coronavirus and thus awarded the trophy to Gor Mahia, who were sitting top of the 17-team league table with 54 points.
Mwendwa also confirmed the promotion of Nairobi City Stars and second-placed Bidco United from the National Super League (NSL) to the top tier.
The crowning of Gor Mahia now means they have won the title a record four times in a row, a feat that has never been achieved by any team since the Kenyan league was launched.
Below is how Kenyans reacted to the decision by FKF.
