The Kenyan champions are expected back home on Wednesday and will not have enough time to prepare for the league tie, hence the postponement.
Meanwhile, the home matches involving Chemelil Sugar and Sony Sugar have also been affected owing to the heavy rain currently pounding the two regions. Part of the communication from the league managers reads as follows:
“Also, kindly note that kick off times of home matches for Chemelil Sugar and Sony Sugar have been changed from 15:00 to 13:00 to reduce chances of them being rained off.”
