A letter from the desk of Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Chair Sam  Nyamweya on Friday 11 May 2012 called off a Kenyan Premier League between AFC Leopards and Sony Sugar set for Saturday 12 May 20 that was to kick off at 1500 hrs at the Nyayo National Stadium.

I received a letter

The letter, addressed to KPL CEO Jack Oguda and the Chairmen of both Leopards and Sony Sugar, sited lack of proper security arrangements as the main reason for the call off.

Sent after working hours, the letter was received by KPL CEO on Saturday morning. And in solidarity, Oguda confirms that indeed the game is off.

- This morning I received a letter dated May 11th from the FKF National Chairman (Sam Nyamweya) announcing the postponement of the KPL match between AFC Leopards vs Sony Sugar this (Saturday 12 May 2012) afternoon, said a communique to Chairmen of both Leopards and Sony Sugar

Yet to be provided

- Although KPL has always and will continue to respect the Laws of Kenya and the legally binding decisions of the courts applying those laws and was assured that proper hosting arrangements were made by the legally recognized officials of AFC Leopards, I have officially postponed the match because of the increased security risks as a result of the announcement.

The new date for the tie is yet to be provided.
