On the other hand, KPL said nothing has changed from the initial plans and insisted Bukhungu Stadium will host the matc.
“We have moved to postpone the matches involving AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia. There will be no derby on Saturday. We are asking the coach (Sebastian Migne) to beat Ghana and to do that he needs to have his best players, ” said Mwendwa.
“We cannot cancel the two games, these games will go on. I am stating categorically that there will be no derby this weekend .We need to be ready for Ghana and that’s can only happen if the coach has all the players in camp for preparations,” charged the FA boss.
