The Football Kenya Federation has punished the AFC Leopards heavily, including with fines, after days of investigations.
Following crowd disturbances that forced the cancellation of Sunday’s Premier League match between AFC Leopards and Kakamega Homeboyz at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega, the team was penalized three points and fined Ksh 500,000. The 13-time national league champions will also be responsible for covering the costs of center referee Michael Obuya’s medical care after he allegedly suffered an assault during the chaos.
The AFC Leopards will also play without their fans for the next four games, as the federation has ordered them to play their remaining four home games in a neutral venue. Due to their involvement in the event, head coach Patrick Aussems and goalie coach Lawrence Webo will also face disciplinary action.
Kakamega Homeboyz, on the other side, received the full three points from the game and a 2-0 victory.
