Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Gor Mahia have attracted a US$ 1000 fine for failing to relay its travel plans in time ahead of the trip to Madagascar to play CNaPS in the return leg of the two sides’ preliminary round clash.
The fine has been served on the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) who have since passed it down to the club and ordered that the same be paid up within two weeks.
Failure to remit the payment within the stipulated time will force the federation to instruct the KPL management to deduct the monies from the club’s monthly grant, a letted from the FKF CEO Robert Muthomi confirmed.
“In reference to Match No. 14 CNAPS (Madagascar) vs Gor Mahia (Kenya) – CL 2016, we regret to inform you that Gor Mahia FC did not respect the notification of the arrival dates of teams as stipulated in Chapter X para 10 of CAF Champions League regulations.
“In accordance to the CAF regulations the federation has hereby been fined US$ 1000 (see attached). We therefore request the club to remit this fine to the federation within 14 days from the date of this letter. If not we shall request the Kenyan Premier League to recover this amount from the club grant,” read the letter signed by the FKF CEO Robert Muthomi.
