Kenya Premiere League cracks whip on Muhoroni youth

By Fred Maingi
Muhoroni Youth have been slapped with a  ksh. 600,000 fine by
the Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC).The club’s chairman Moses Adagala is accused of leading a section of
club fans by invading the pitch on Sunday March 26th during a league match against Kakamega Homeboyz.
Adagala who did not show up for the hearing, will part away with a
total of ksh. 200,000 for personal misconduct, in addition to the ksh.
400,000 fine on the club that is supposed to be settled in a month.
The ruling said in part “The chairman of Muhoroni, Mr. Moses Adagala and the supporters of Muhoroni breached the rules of Kenyan Football. Rule 3.3 provides that Members and Spectators are only allowed to attend or participate in the matches on condition that they observe the rules. Anyone who violates the rules can be ordered to leave the venue.
If they refuse they can be removed by force and will face
additional penalties and sanctions.””The tribunal ,the statement said,finds Mr. Adagala guilty of violating Rule 3.3 and fines him personally ksh. 200,000. Given that he is the chair of the club, it is imperative that he leads by good example. In addition to the fine, he is suspended from attending any KPL matches for the next 60 days, from the date of the ruling.””The tribunal also finds Muhoroni Youth Football club guilty and fines
the club Ksh. 400,000 to be paid within 30 days of the ruling,
otherwise to be recovered by KPL. The abandoned match had already been awarded to Kakamega Homeboyz. The tribunal upholds this award as proper and effective,” Stated the ruling.

It is not the first time Muhoroni finds itself in the wrong side of
the law, since in 2016 the club was ordered by the IDCC to pay former
players like Andrew Ongwae and Wycliffe Ochomo for unprocedural
dismisal.

The club recently parted ways with head coach Gilbert Selebwa  in
what many viewed as a spat that erupted after both Adagala and Selebwa failed to agree on money issues  and administration  matters.
