Leopards have vowed not to honour their Kenyan Premier League Top 8 Tournament match against Gor
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.
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
-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.
