Justice and Football: KPLvFKF, FKF vs Super8 and a tweep in court

Kenya Premier League directors, Bob Munro, Ambrose Rachier, Juma Mwinyikai, Elly Kalekwa, Jack Oguda and Allan Kasavuli won’t have to worry anymore about the contempt of court case after the High Court acquitted them of the same.

In her ruling, Justice Roselyn Aburili ruled that the FKF did not make any effort to serve the order at match venues and also that the federation failed to enjoin two other defendants – KEFORA and Sports Kenya in the contempt of court application.

Monday the 16th of March shall however present with it another day of drama in the corridors of justice, as the case to decide who really needs to be in charge of the league shall be heard.

Let’s hope something positive comes out of that, well, not so much positivity going around the football pitches- well, they are empty.

Here is a link from the ruling from the Kenya Law Website http://kenyalaw.org/caselaw/cases/view/106719/ (available on PDF, DOC, DOCX, XML, so you shouldn’t have so much trouble.)

Super8 in Court

Yes, the Super8 Tournament, one that’s run by Extreme Sports, shall clearly not kick off this weekend. FKF (Nairobi Branch) through its lawyers, Lawyers of Extreme Sports made their submissions but since the other two defendants KEFORA and sports Kenya had not been served; the hearing couldn’t go on.

Supersport vs Francis Gaitho

If you love Twitter, like we do- you must have come across the twitter handle @KenyaFootball.

Following a few ‘offensive’ tweets made by the same account late last year, Supersport International has made good its threat of going to court……yes, I mean, Businessman Francis Gaitho got served with court papers.

We were lucky to get a copy from him (mailed directly to us), and here it is.

Like they say, “Don’t discuss issues before the court of law blah blah blah.” We won’t give our take on it, we shall let it go, but before that happens, be very careful about what you post on social media, especially if you don’t have sufficient proof to support any claims.

Sports Law students should have a good day with these

Cheers to everyone! Have a good day ahead……………
