The Saturday 12 May 2012 Kenyan Premier League tie between hosts AFC Leopards and visiting Sony Sugar has been called off.

A letter from Kenya’s football Governing body Football Kenya Federation (FKF) dated Friday 11 May confirms as much.

Left with no choice but to cancel this match

-Following a court injunction deterring the current office bearers of AFC Leopards from organizing and/or acting as bonafide officials of the club, it seemingly looks like that there is confusing in hosting of the above (Leopards – Sony Sugar) match

-Since AFC Leopards are the hosting team, it has come to our attention that no proper security arrangements has been put in place hence in view of the confusion, the Federation is left with no choice but to cancel this match until further notice.

high security match

-Resulting from the court order, and the legal contention between the two AFC SC factions, this encroaches the high security match which is bound to culminate in endangering the people’s safety and lives of the bonafide custodians in the country. We are compelled by the prevailing conditions to cancel the match until further notice.

Other than being copied to the KPL CEO, the letter has also been copied to the Chair of AFC Leopards as well as the Chair of Sony Sugar.

The  tie was set to kick off at the Nyayo National Stadium from 1500hrs
