Mwendwa: What is going to occur if Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards do not toe FKF line

The head of the association claims that he will not adapt the rules to K’Ogalo and Ingwe and warns of further sanctions

Nick Mwendwa, president of the Kenya Football Association, has warned that he will not hesitate to punish Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards even more if they continue to “misbehave”.

On Sunday, the federation punished the two Kenyan giants after they decided to skip the much-anticipated Mashemeji derby at Thika Stadium and demand their money from monthly grants and also prize money for participating in the final of the FKF Shield Cup.

The FKF deducted three points from both teams, fined AFC Leopards as the home team and Gor Mahia with 4 million Ksh as the away team, and also banned the club’s bosses – Dan Shikanda and Ambrose Rachier – for two weeks until the decision of the disciplinary committee.

Mwendwa told the story gate he will not hesitate to further punish the two teams, including relegation to the lower division, if they do not obey the law like other teams in the first division.

What was said

“We have to respect the law, and the teams also have to respect the rule of law. If they don’t behave and stick to the line, they should expect more from the association, ”said Mwendwa gate.

Gor Mahia versus AFC leopards.

“We cannot bend the law just because it affects Gor Mahia or AFC Leopards. All teams in the league have to respect the rules of the game and these two are no exception, the law applies to everyone, no matter what penalty we apply. ”Bandari or Nzoia or even KCB are the same penalties that Gor and AFC face.

“Gor and AFC have to wake up now and stick to the line, they have to follow the law, and there is no shortcut for it.

“I want to be very clear that if you don’t honor your next two games I’ll kick you out of the league, those are the rules, not my rules, all the teams in the league are the same, we’ve seen Sony.” Sugar was relegated for missing three games, so the same rule applies to both of them. “

Mwendwa has also challenged the two clubs to wake up and compete with the best teams in Africa in terms of management and financial stability.

“It’s a shame that Gor and AFC, despite their longstanding presence, have refused to brand themselves in Africa. They should go big and compete with teams like Al Ahly,” Mwendwa continued.

“The teams can’t be ashamed, they have six bank accounts, they don’t have a stable and reliable bank account, sometimes it is even a problem to give them money and sometimes they tell you that they want the money in cash, why? should such teams work like that? “

The AFC Leopards will face the Nairobi City Stars in their next league appearance on Tuesday, while Gor Mahia will face Kakamega Homeboyz on Wednesday.
