AFC: We are out of Top Eight Tournament

Injured fan

AFC Leopards have vowed not to honour their Kenyan Premier League Top 8 Tournament match against Gor Mahia after feeling disatisfied with the Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee’s (IDCC) ruling following the violence incident that erupted during their KPL match, on Sunday 18 April.

On Thursday 19 April, IDCC released a verdict sanctioning Gor to play their next three home matches in an empty stadium and also furnish the committee with a plan within 15 days on how they will implement security in their home games.

Dissatisfied

In an exclusive interview with futaa.com, the acting Secretary General Duncan Angode said that the decision was not fair at all as IDCC has gone against their demands.

-One of the conditions was to compensate all our injured fans and award us points since it’s their fans who disrupted the match. How can you be contented with such a ruling yet our fans have bills to pay in the hospital?

Two titles

-We are not going to participate in the Top 8 Tournament. We are doing it in solidarity with our fans and I know another chance will automatically come next season.  We were to be awarded the points but I know God will pay them.

-We are concentrating on the league and FKF Cup not the tournament (Top 8). If we start engaging them in war of words, we will lose focus and for that reason we are not interested in the tournament. Let the organizers give Gor a ticket to the next round, said Angode.
