Nairobi - The High Court has pushed forward the hearing date for a case in which warring factions in Kenyan football are in court, further denting the start of the competitive season.
The court ruled Thursday that the respondents and accused in the matter had yet to be fully furnished with the relevant papers and that they should be immediately so that a hearing be done Monday.
The Football Kenya Federation FKF and the Kenyan Premier League LTD KPL are in court contesting over the running of the country's top flight league.
The court had Tuesday asked both sides to try meet and agree amicably over the changes being proposed by the FKF to the league.
The FKF wants the league to be an 18 team one, while the KPL, which has been running the league in the last seven years does not fancy the change.
It is understood that the two sides agreed to have the league named the FKF Kenyan Premier League when the two sides met Tuesday evening.
More to come....
