Nick Mwendwa said : “The ruling by the SDT was very clear that it was within our mandate to have an 18-team league subject to us meeting the financial conditions for an expanded league this year and KPL were firmly aware of that. However, they went on to release a fixture with sixteen teams, defying the court order and also our recommendations. It is for this reason that we have summoned four individuals to explain themselves because they were part of the Joint Executive Committee that came up with the agreements but went on to mislead others to contravene the agreement,” External link
