You must by now have known that the Courts have lifted the injunction restraining KPL from running the League. It’s been a few hours since that went down…..
Pro KPL souls must be drowning their happiness somewhere down town as the pro FKF nemesis strategies on their next move- and that’s what football shouldn’t be all about.
The court idea isn’t either what football should be about. Basically: the thought of the same wasn’t wise for starts.
I’m tempted to think, KPL now feels as a ‘birth rite’, the league is it’s domain. FKF as the body mandated by FIFA to oversee the running of football in the country, now have a cause for bruise and hate if not contempt (sounds like a really strong word).
At the end of the court process, FKF must have felt the smack on the face the most, Friday sounded like a dress rehearsal. KPL, like a freshly pumped up boxer: feel more energized and focused.
But is that how the latter should feel and the former made to look like? They brought it on themselves, we would want to think so- but shall it mark the end like we might want to think of (in our numbers?)
The future of league football, still depends a lot on what happens in the aftermath of this.
FKF have a point to prove, KPL already has- and without much struggle, can temporarily claim victory.
The thought of another future explosion should scare KPL to it’s tummy however.
Sanity is not an easy path to pursue in the mix of all these events. With FKF having an unseen and known FIFA backing, KPL look exposed in the eyes of those who have an inner view of things- those like you and i- can ‘safely’ join KPL in its celebration.
True sanity however shall only come when Kenya has one league at the top and not two parallel ones threatening to widen further the already caused rift.
No matter what the future leads to: the need for just one league at the top and a proper league structure thoroughly defining, number of teams, promotion and relegation in subsequent divisions- will be the proper definition of sanity.
And like the true meaning of the word ‘proper’ which loosely translates to ‘genuine’, a genuine talk needs to be held by the two parties. Courts will come and go, the football however has to stay with us.
