Nairobi - The FKF have postponed the country's promotion play-off as they continue to implement plans to change the Kenyan Premier League to an 18-team division.
National Super League Zone A side Nakumatt FC were scheduled to lock
horns with Zone B counterparts Kakamega Homeboyz for a place in the top
flight, although that match has been put on hold while the FKF
deliberate various options in their plans to expand the top tier.
statement from FKF president Sam Nyamweya read: "The committee has
already started their work and we expect them to present their findings
to us within the next 14 days after which they will give us a proposal
which will be given the utmost concentration by the relevant bodies."

proposal in question has suggested that only Nakuru All Stars, who
finished rock bottom in 2014, suffer relegation, with second-last
Nairobi City Stars allowed to retain their top-flight status.
Shabana and Posta Rangers would enter the KPL, having won outright
promotion from the second tier, leaving Nakumatt and Homeboyz to battle
it out for the remaining position in the new-look division.
