May you live in interesting times!” that is an ancient Chinese curse. At first glance, one may think it is actually a blessing, but looked at closely, one realises its brutal meaning.

Interesting times are those periods when confusion and suffering reign and death is the only way out of misery.

We are so used to squabbles and court cases between the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and the league managers Kenya Premier League (KPL) before the beginning of every season.

In fact, we look forward to the squabbling to the extent that when it did not happen this time round, we were almost gloomy! Those months of quarrelling have been our interesting times and we now miss the wretchedness! That is the irony of it all.

We must clear away that sad expectation and congratulate the two bodies on solving football issues without much acrimony this time round.

We at the same time send them a belated happy New Year and happy new season messages. We have to be proud that this time, the term has begun smoothly and on schedule.
