Former Football Kenya Federation boss Sam Nyamweya has won a court battle against current FKF president Nick Mwendwa and Kenyan Premier League CEO Robert Muthoni over the composition of the KPL.
In a Judgement passed in the Milinmani High court in Nairobi today Thursday 21st September, 2017, it was heard that the Memorandum of Understanding signed by Nyamweya binds the number of teams in the KPL at 16 from 2017 to 2022 and not 18 as pushed for by the FKF.
It means the 18 team league this season is null and void and the winners can not take part in Continental tournaments.
Further more it complicates matters for the two struggling teams Thika Utd and Western Stima cause they were in the initial 16 last season and the two teams that were sneaked in Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka are out of the relegation zone.
The FKF have further been restrained from interfering with running of KPL and the Club Licensing regulations declared null and void.
In February this year, Sam Nyamweya filed a case in the High Court seeking orders to suspend the Kenyan Premier League Club Licensing rules and regulations introduced by the federation.
The former FKF boss accused Nick Mwendwa and Robert Muthoni of passing Club Licensing regulations without the participation of Members and stakeholders in breach of Natural Justice and violation of FIFA and CAF Club Licensing guidelines.
