Fans react to penalty meted by FKF on Gor, AFC

The local football supporters took to social media to state their positions following a move by Football Kenya Federation putting out a total fine of KSh. 10 million against Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards after they boycotted a derby match that had been scheduled to be played on Saturday at the Thika Stadium.

On Sunday,FKF in a Press briefing by its president Nick Mwendwa docked AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia 3 points each and gave respective club chairmen Dan Shikanda and Ambrose Rachier two weeks provisional suspension pending hearing of their case in the appeals committee which will determine the duo’s fate.

The two prominent Kenyan Premier League clubs had on Friday written to the federation informing them of their impending boycott, if their league title and broadcast sponsorship arrears, as well as their pending Betway Cup (final game) payouts were not credited to their accounts by the evening of the day preceding the derby.

It’s the first time in the history of Kenyan club football that the Derby has failed to take place with the two clubs blatantly defying FKF President Nick Mwendwa who had warned them on the same day of dire consequences if they missed the match.

The two clubs didn’t travel to Thika but instead organised a friendly match at Camp Toyoyo grounds which Gor won 1-0 courtesy of Samuel Onyango’s first half strike.
