Nairobi,KENYA: Tusker FC and Muhoroni Youth have found themselves in trouble after the Kenyan Premier League’s Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC) found them guilty of breaching the rules of the game.

In its verdict on Thursday, IDCC docked Tusker three points for failing to produce its players’ cards during a KPL match pitting them and Zoo FC played on June 27.

The decision sees the complainant Zoo FC awarded three points with a 2-0 victory propelling them to 10th in the standings on 26 points while Tusker dropped to fifth with 29 points.

The IDCC wrath however, pinched more on Muhoroni Youth who suffered double lose after his chairman Moses Adagala was handed a two month stadium ban besides the club being deducted three points.

Muhoroni has also been fined a million shillings for trouble caused by the fans and players in matches against Kakamega Homeboyz, Sony Sugar and Ulinzi Stars earlier this season.

The punishment also befell Kariobangi Sharks who will now miss the services of his defender Pascal Ogweno for the coming six matches following the IDCC decision to uphold his red-card.

Ogweno was sent off for handling the ball in the box during a KPL clash against Posta Rangers, and Kariobangi failing in their move to challenge the red-card has since landed them a Sh.100,000 fine.

Meanwhile, the Kenyan Premier League KPL resumes action this weekend after a one week layoff due to the August 8 polls.
