Muhoroni Youth, Sofapaka FC back to the Kenya Premier League after Sports Dispute Tribunal nullified their case

Sofapaka and Muhoroni FC will now participate in the Kenya Premier League.

This comes out after the Sports Disputes Tribunal on March 15, 2017, nullified that the FKF licensing manual was defective as it did not comply with CAF and Fifa rules and regulations thus couldn’t be used to demean the two teams.

The Sports dispute Tribunal Chair Mr. John Ohaga who presided over the hearing of the case canceled a decision by the Football Kenya Federation to demote the two sides to the National Super League after failing to adhere to club licensing requirements.

“We have in any event found that the manual is defective in material respects which must be rectified before it could be properly used as the basis of undertaking the licensing process. We have also reached the conclusion that the appeals body established under the FKF licensing regulation is inoperative,” the ruling read in part.

The decision was to affect Sofapaka only as the two clubs had forwarded their complaints separately but after an application by lawyers from KPL and the two clubs, it was decided that the decision also affects Muhoroni.

During the hearing, FKF lawyer Patricia Mitei opposed saying that the reasons for the relegation of the two were different, but Ohaga ruled that the decision would affect both clubs.
