The League has accused Muhoroni Youth of denying Sony Sugar players and technical staff from accessing the checking area contrary to Rule 3.4 (a) of the Rules governing Kenyan football, and that this particular match, played in Muhoroni on April 17, was delayed for 12 minutes due to unavailability of adequate security personnel.

Muhoroni Youth chairman Moses Adagala has also been accused of leading a group of home fans in invading the pitch and charging towards match officials. Adagala is accused of also trying to force his way into the match officials’ changing rooms which is contrary to the rules governing Kenyan football.

The brewers are also accused of player tapping. The League has charged them of illegal approaching four Sony Sugar players contrary to KPL policy.

The League also instituted proceedings against 15-time champions Gor Mahia for the throwing of water cans and stones to the pitch attributed to their fans during their game against Ulinzi on July 2 in Kisumu, causing a 15-minute stoppage.

Leading KPL top scorer Waruru is accused of provoking K’Ogalo supporters by celebrating in front of them after scoring against their team which is contrary to KPL rules during the match.

The respondents are expected to appear before the disciplinary committee between Monday July 10 and Friday July 14.
