Kenya Reprieve for AFC Leopards as FKF revises fine and ban

AFC Leopards have been handed a reprieve after the Football Kenya Federation revised some of the tough measures handed to them by the competitions committee following their aborted Premier League fixture against Kakamega Homeboyz.

In the Match no. 222 fixture at Bukhungu Stadium which was abandoned due to crowd trouble in the second half with Homeboyz leading 1-0, AFC were punished by forfeiting the game on a 2-0 basis, fined Ksh500, 000 and ordered to play next four matches behind closed doors.

However, the FKF’s Appeals Committee has rescinded some of the decisions with the fine reduced to Ksh300, 000, and the ban of four matches without fans coming down to three matches.
