Kenyan Premier League decline FKF request to postpone fixtures. Here’s Why

The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) has declined a request from the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to shelve this weekend’s fixtures including the Gor Mahia v AFC Leopards Mashemeji Derby to allow Harambee Stars play two friendly matches on Friday and Monday.

According to KPL Chief Executive Officer Jack Oguda, the two friendly games do not fall in the FIFA calendar and hence are under no obligation to shelve fixtures.

“We received a request from FKF on the same but we have declined because it is not an obligation for clubs to release their players. We are running on a very tight schedule and moving the fixtures will only work to congest the calendar further,” Oguda said.
