K’Ogalo, Sony ruling deferred to Friday


JACK-OGUDANAIROBI, Kenya, October 16 – The much anticipated Football Kenya Federation’s Appeals Committee ruling on Gor Mahia verses Sony Sugar has been postponed to Friday.

According to Kenyan Premier League (KPL) CEO, Jack Oguda, the decision that was to be announced on Wednesday failed to be announced due to lack of quorum from the Appeals side.

“Clubs have been given until Thursday to add to their submissions which judges will deliberate on to give a verdict,” the KPL boss told Capital Sport.

The match pitting the two sides played six weeks ago at the Awendo Green Stadium ended prematurely in the 84th minute when Sony players protested an equalising goal by K’Ogalo’s David Owino.

A fortnight ago, Gor Mahia head coach Bobby Williamson urged KPL to award points to his side blaming the host for the abandonment.

“I don’t understand why KPL wants to make the league close when actually its not, we deserve those three points because Gor Mahia never caused problems.

“The home team (Sony Sugar) was in charge of security and their players over reacted that is why they deserve to lose points.

“As far as am concerned we should be awarded maximum points and must be reflected on the league table,” the former Uganda Cranes coach told after K’Ogalo beat Chemelil Sugar 1-0 two weeks ago.

If Williamson’s side is awarded the three points, they will only be one match away to be crowned 2013 KPL champions for the first time since 1995.

With four matches to go, Gor Mahia are perched at the top of the league with 50 points seven ahead of second placed Sofapaka while Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno’s side have dropped to 14th place with 24 points.
