Former Harambee Stars defender slapped with 10-year ban

24 Apr 2019, 19:50

Former Harambee Stars defender George Owino has been hit with a 10-year ban from all football-related activities by football governing body FIFA over a match-fixing scandal.

In addition,  the Ex- Harambee Stars defender has been fined Ksh.1.5 million.

"Moreover, the Kenyan player Mr Geroge Owino Audi has been banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at both national and international level (administrative, sports or any other) for a period of ten (10) years,"

"In addition, a fine in the amount of CHF 15,000 has been imposed upon him," read part of the statement on their website. 

Owino is said to have been paid millions of shillings to directly influence Harambee Stars' matches between 2009 and 2011.

This was revealed in a report released by the Federation of International Football Associations (Fifa) in September 2018, which showed Owino having been in communication with high-profile match-fixer Wilson Perumal.

The report further indicated that Owino involved some other Harambee Stars players, including 'a Pascal, a Julius and an Edgar'.
