The Court of Appeal on Friday ruled that the SportPesa Premier League (SPL) should continue having 18 teams until the Football Kenya Federation (FKF)’s appeal against the High Court ruling is heard and determined.

FKF on September 25 filed an appeal challenging High Court Judge John Mativo’s ruling that rendered the promotion of Zoo Kericho and Nakumatt to the top flight null and void.

However on October 3, the appellate court, a three-judge bench led by Justice Phillip Waki, Justice William Ouko and Justice Minoti Kathurima, ordered the two sides be reinstated into the league until a full ruling is delivered.

In their signed ruling on November 10, they directed the two teams to proceed participating in the top flight.

“The court has stated that it will weigh the respective hardship and prejudice that each party is likely to suffer by the granting or denial of an order of stay,” the ruling said.
