Following a meeting held on Tuesday between Football Kenya Federation and Kenyan Premier League, it has now been agreed that the TOP 8 semi final matches will proceed as scheduled on Thursday.
The semi final matches had been thrown into uncertainty following FKF’s announcement on Monday that they will not recognize the decision by KPL to award a walk over to Gor Mahia after AFC Leopards failed to show up for the quarter final match at Kasarani on Sunday.
“For the interest of sponsors and that of football development in the country, the tournament shall proceed as planned.” FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya has said.
However, in a press statement released on Wednesday afternoon, FKF announced that all fines imposed on AFC Leopards for failing to attend the match in question on Sunday be nullified.
FKF has further announced that they will in future review the staging of the Top 8 tournament and has called for consultative forums between KPL Clubs and FKF to agree on modalities of running and staging the tournament.
