Football bosses hire ‘private security’ during court session
A number of football administrators opted to hire private security during the hearing of a case at the Milimani Law Courts on Thursday morning.
This development comes in the wake of an altercation between a group of youth believed to be football fans and Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Vice President Robert Asembo on Tuesday morning.
Asembo was reportedly confronted by the goons who accused him of ‘spoiling the game’ before being chased out of the court precincts during the incident, allegations the administrator cum lawyer has since vehemently denied.
But there was no taking chances on Thursday, with several youth seen on patrol around the court compound as the hearing continued.
Asembo was in attendance during the tense court session, alongside several other administrators including head of referees GMT Ottieno, KPL CEO Jack Oguda, Frank Okoth (also of KPL), fans, journalists and other stakeholders.
Meanwhile, Lady Justice Roselyn Aburii ruled that the Court will hear the contempt of court charges against the Kenyan Premier League, a plea by former administrators Sammy Sholei and Dan Shikanda to be enjoined in the case, and the injunction by FKF against KPL, in that order.
The hearing on the first case was due to begin at midday.
