The seven: Posta Rangers, Western Stima, Muhoroni Youth, Mathare United, Sony Sugar, Sofapaka and Thika United failed to beat the Monday deadline but were handed Friday deadline.
The deadline will elapse on Friday noon for the clubs affected to submit their documents to the club licensing committee chaired by Prof.Edwin Wamukoya.
The licensing comitee will meet on Jamuary 3rd to scrutinize the re-submitted documents and hand the report to FKF January 4th.
