The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) CEO Jack Oguda has rubbished the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) directive on Wednesday concerning the criteria for promotion to and relegation from the top flight starting the 2016 season.
In the ruling, the FKF abided by an agreement reached from a previous Special General Meeting held Kakamega County in January 2015, which settled on promoting six and relegating four from the KPL to have an 18 – team league but Oguda says that will not be implemented once the season runs out.
A month ago the federation and the KPL signed a Memorandum of Understanding depicting that two teams will be relegated to the second tier then two promoted but in a twist of events, the FKF sent out a statement nullifying the agreement, a matter that has been rubbished by Oguda.
“We just signed the MoU less than a month ago so why would we want to change on that today? There are no grounds whatsoever to change this at this time because it was also one of the conditions set by FIFA when they came visiting.
“Furthermore, we had a KPL Governing Council meeting and ratified the same so we will still have two teams promoted and two relegated,” he said.
