Celebration rocks AFC Leopards camp after the latest crucial move by IDAC

AFC Leopards will finish the season level on points with Nairobi City Stars after the Independent Disciplinary and Appeals Committee (IDAC) awarded them three points in their match against Ulinzi Stars which failed to kick off.

This is after leopards failed to take to the field despite travelling to Kericho to face Ulinzi Stars citing an ill equipped ambulance that lacked a defibrillator contrary to the laws of the game.

ccording to IDAC the matter was heard on 7th June 2022 in full and the match awarded to AFC Leopards on a 2-0 basis with the consequence that the three points at stake are also awarded to Ingwe.

By virtue of an inferior goal difference to Nairobi City Stars, AFC Leopards will not improve their standings as they maintain their sixth position despite the ruling pushing their points tally to 52.

In some of the other matters before it, IDAC failed to make a decision on the aborted clash between Ulinzi versus Sofapaka and Gor Mahia versus Vihiga Bullets on grounds that the cases are before another judicial body, the Sports Disputes Tribunal.

Just like Leopards, Sofapaka declined to take to the pitch at Kericho Green Stadium on January 8 on grounds that the soldiers provided an ill-equipped ambulance for the clash.

The clash between Gor and Vihiga on February 13 at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani was abandoned at half-time due to chaos.

Both Sofapaka and Gor moved to the John Ohaga-led Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) to challenge the FKF-Caretaker Committee decisions on the matters.

On the matter between Sofapaka and Ulinzi, the Caretaker Committee directed that the match be replayed. But the “Batoto ba Mungu” moved to SDT and obtained an injunction not to honour the clash.

On the matter between Gor and Vihiga, the Caretaker Committee ruled in favour of the latter which K’Ogalo successfully challenged in the SDT.

The SDT is yet to issue a ruling on the matter while Vihiga have been relegated to the National Super League after finishing 17th with 21 points.

IDAC also failed to rule on the matter between champions Tusker and Gor over crowd trouble in their 1-1 draw at Thika Stadium in Kiambu on April 9, stating it is before another judicial body.

But it found Bandari’s Mohamed Siraj guilty over charges of assaulting the referee in their side’s clash with Nzoia Sugar on April 10 at Sudi Stadium in Bungoma. He was fined Sh 5,000 while his teammate Felly Mulumba was acquitted of the same charges.
