Kenya Sofapaka imposes fine on Khalid Jumaan for violating club rules

FKF Premier League side Sofapaka FC has fined midfielder Khalid Jumaan Ksh 400,000 and instructed him to engage in community service for the remainder of the season after he alongside eight others staged a go-slow over unpaid dues.

This action comes in response to his participation, along with eight others, in a go-slow protest last year over unpaid dues. According to Sofapaka, Jumaan, who has been fined Kshs 400,000, which must be paid within the next seven days, incited players to skip the team’s round of 13 fixture against Nzoia Sugar at Sudi Stadium, which Batoto ba Mungu went ahead to win 3-0.

“About the Disciplinary meeting held on December 13, 2023, the committee found you guilty of violating Article 13 by engaging in strike/picketing, leading to your absence from training for over five days without valid reasons or permissions,” read part of the letter signed by the club’s Chief Executive Officer, Jimmy Ambajo.

“Your conduct, including inciting team members not to travel for our match against Nzoia Sugar, brought the club into disrepute.” As a result of these violations, the club has fined you Ksh 400,000, which must be paid within the next seven days. Additionally, you are to immediately commence community service as directed by the Team Manager until the season’s end, during which time you will be suspended from the rest of the squad.”
