KPL investigate ref blunder

21 October 2014, 08:14

Nairobi - The Kenyan Premier League is set to investigate the calamitous refereeing on Sunday evening which led to the abandonment of the clash between Tusker FC and Muhoroni Youth.

Match officiating in Kenya's top flight has long been the subject of much criticism, and the farcical nature of some of the decisions reached new heights this past weekend when Tusker were discovered to be playing with 12 players.

It took Muhoroni skipper Abbas Akinyemi to point out the irregularity, before both teams became involved in a mass row which lasted for well over 10 minutes, with referee Andrew Juma eventually having to call the game off.

Speaking of the incident, KPL CEO Jack Oguda told Capital Sport: "This is shocking and we shall look at the Referees' and Match Commissioners' reports tomorrow (Tuesday) to see the way forward.

"If we can't resolve the matter internally, we shall take it to the committee to decide. Some of these mistakes are school boy blunders."

The Brewers were already leading 2-1 prior to the mix-up, which occurred shortly before the hour mark, with the on-field fracas eventually seeing the ref call things off on 77 minutes.
