- The KPL finds itself in a financial conundrum following the exit of gaming firm SportPesa who were the league title sponsors.
Kakamega Homeboyz have petitioned the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) to suspend the competition until a solution to the financial crisis in the league is solved.
The KPL finds itself in a financial conundrum following the exit of gaming firm SportPesa who were the league title sponsors.
An official petition initiated by Kakamega Homeboyz and supported by six more clubs cites five reasons why the league matches should be suspended.
They want the KPL to convene a special Governing Council meeting to discuss the way forward.
With five rounds of matches played so far, match officials are yet to be paid a single penny, KPL is yet to find a sponsor and have no funds for administrative costs, clubs receive no grants while one walkover – Sony versus AFC Leopards, has already been awarded due to the challenges.
It is with that basis that Kakamega Homeboyz officially wrote to KPL’s Governing Council requesting for an emergency meeting to suspend the league.
