Football Kenya limited has awarded Kogalo the ill fated semi final match against  Ingwe. As a result, Sirkal are through to the finals where they will face star studded Sofapaka.

In a letter addressed to both teams by the FKL League & competition committee Manager Bernard Shitiabayi, AFC Leopards fans were accused of causing the match abandonment.

No other disciplinary measures were taken against AFC Leopards who have insisted they will not appeal against the ruling.

The letter to both clubs said” After scrutiny to the match reports from the referee and the match commissar by sheer interpretation, it came clear that the AFC fans threw stones in the field of play causing the match abandonment. In pre-event meetings held in three different occasion the Field security was entirely been vested to the two teams stewards. The match is officially awarded to Gor Mahia fc.’

Acting secretary General Duncan Angode said   they had decided to let the issue  rest and concentrate with the Kenya Premier League(KPL)

“Gor Mahia are our brothers and we don’t want to engage in any verbal or written exchange. We wish them all the best in the final’ observed Angode.

(Additional Reporting by StarAfrica.com)

The match referee had earlier awarded the match to Gor mahia and noted in his match report that the stone throwing by AFC fans is what finally caused the abandonment.

Kogalo fans have something to smile about. After a spell of poor play, the team seems to be on its way to recovery. Now that the premier league is out of reach, Kogalo must pull all stops to win the FKL cup as it represents there only hope of winning any silverware. Plus it comes with the right to play continental football in 2012. But Sofapaka who just beat Tusker will not be in a giving mood. Whatever fans can do to motivate the playing unit, lets do it.

    I applaud Duncan Angode (AFC Acting Secretary General) on his comments “Gor Mahia are our brothers and we don’t want to engage in any verbal or written exchange. We wish them all the best in the final” ….. that is the kind of spirit we should have between the “Shemejis”.
    Sofakapa wants to get a “double” …. but Gor has other plans. See you next week !!
    GO GORrrrrrrr !!!!

    by the way, bwana interim chairman (bloggers branch),was it omondi omollo or okoth jabillo?,in our next meeting, high on the agenda should be ‘preparation for the cup winners cup trip’. past experiences tells me that we will get a regional team in the first round.(uganda,tz,rwanda or burundi).

    FIRST THINGS FIRST COMRADE ARRUMTIDDI

    Comrade Arrumtiddi, I understand your eagerness. Before we shift our focus, we still have a task ahead of us. The FKL cup final between K’Ogalo and Sofapaka is due on Wednesday next week and the Premier league is not yet over.

    I join the rest of my comrades in urging our supporters to turn up in large numbers on Wednesday to cheer our boys to victory.

    The eagerness on comrade Arrumtiddi is understandable. The new generation o of K’Ogalo fans cannot remember the last time GM participated in the continental championship. They only read in our archives, if they care to find out anyway. Only 90 minutes to be played on Wednesday separates us.

    I can’t wait to be there!

    WHERE IS THE INQUEST REPORT

    Comrades,

    It’s been several months now since the tragic death at the Nyayo national stadium that the claimed the lives of 8 fans in total.

    Kenyans and in particular the relatives of the deceased have been waiting with bated breath the outcome of the report that was supposed to unearth the circumstander under which the 8 fans met their death.

    As we wait, the chairman of the inquest committee , Titus Kasuve resigned in a huff. No one knows whether the public inquiry was initiated. The PM said the report is ready and awaiting formal announcement by Minister for sports. FKL through kasuve deny any knowledge of such report. Who is fooling who here? Kenya is notorious for sweeping every under the carpet. Is this one different?

    I suggest that one of our branches take up the matter and pressure the Government to make the report public. K’Ogalo has a big stake on this matter since most of those who died were ardent fans. We cannot afford to gamble with the lives of Kenyans because of greed and laxity.

    I am increasingly becoming disturbed by the ugly scenes like the one we witnessed recently between GM and their perenial rivals, AFC Leopards. Thank God no injuries were reported.
    I repeat again. Let us exercise responsibility despite the outcome of the match. Old habits, they say, die hard. You and I have a role to play to reverse this behaviour.

    I agree wednesday is our biggest match this season as it stands currently. Let us all & sundry rally behind the team in rainfall, in sunshine, for the entire 90+ minutes. The team is all out to cementing a place in continental championship next season which is exactly our rightful place in soccer. I am more than eager & I believe we are on course as we handle the congestion.

    @ Jabilo, kindly update on the inaugural meeting last week

    Jahkoremo..you’re more than right on the Zico thing.

    Why do we get partsan concerning glaring,destructive and non value adding issues. If Zico decided to go away Nicholas let him go..even if we lose lets lose in peace!Its football.

    Regarding the Lavatsa debacle, this young person must be disciplined if we must maintain professionalism, many of us will never be hero worshipers and no professional team is a walk in walk out public toilet for any player..if i were able to i would insist on serious disciplinary action on him and any other player beahing the way he did.

    Lets meet at Nyayo.

    As we hope for some positive news from the local ‘Old Trafford’ we should now note that the team is recovering from the bad patch of the last few months. I gather the team was taken for some team building sessions in the wild. That’s how it should be as the big corprations we know all do this before they begin their calendar or financial year. We could see the self-belief on the players during the derby. On Lavatsa, word from him was that he was injured and was attending phsio clinics and had forms to prove it. He even vowed to help us win the remaining matches. That’s what we need at this time though I wonder where the other info about him absconding came from. We wish him the best in the remaining matches. On whether Zico comes back or not the decision should lie within the management and playing/technical unit. They are best to comment on this as they relate to him one on one on a daily basis. As fans at times we rely on romours to make our decisions. Though our results this year have not been good with him at the helm personally I think he needs some people-management training and counselling. As I said before even the best of CEOs also have weaknesses for which they are taken for such training. From what we have told him and wrote about him his confidence and self esteem must be at its lowest. After all he is human. Whatever we decide on the coach let’s not forget that he was once one of our greatest players and be civil on the way we go about it. That’s my personal view and I believe I’m entitled to it just like everybody else. What remains now is for us to support the team, forget the side issues and get the FKL cup and a respectable position in the KPL league.
