Mathare United attacker Daniel Mwaura has expressed delight at his return to the team ahead of the Kenyan Premier League tie away to Muhoroni Youth to be played on Saturday 8 April.

Mwaura, who was recently promoted to the assistant captain role, missed the 2-1 loss to Sofapaka due to suspension after picking a red card in the Round 2 match against Nzoia United.

"It feels good to be back and available for selection. I felt like I let the team down by being sent off but I am now ready to give my best,"

"We have a tough match ahead of us but we are approaching it with a positive mind. It is important that we win and collect as many points as possible in the first leg," said Mwaura.

Another notable inclusion in Francis Kimanzi's squad for the trip to Muhoroni is Tyson Odhiambo who was signed in January from Dandora All Stars.

Kenya national football team is now ranked better than the likes of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang's Gabon, Cape Verde and Norway after a 10-place upward move in the latest Fifa Rankings released Thursday April 6.

The Harambee Stars were at position 88 when the last rankings were released on March 9 and now find themselves at position 78, thanks in whole to the two friendly matches they played against higher ranked sides between that time.

Neighbours Uganda came home March 23 in a game that ended 1-1 before the Democratic Republic of Congo were beaten 2-1 three days later as the Stanley Okumbi-led side stretched their unbeaten run to 10 games. Uganda moved up two spots to 72nd despite the loss, although the gap between Kenya and the Cranes, best ranked East African team, is increasingly reducing. Congo shaded three spots to 41st.

In Africa, Kenya are at position 16 with Uganda just a spot above. Africa Cup of Nations beaten finalists Egypt returned top in the continental log ahead of Senegal, Cameroon, Burkina Faso and Nigeria.

Brazil, who became the first team to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, replaced Argentina as the world's best team. Germany and Chile maintained positions two and three respectively while fifth-placed Colombia switched positions with seventh-placed Belgium with France sandwiched between.

The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has cautioned its members against dealing with former boss Sam Nyamweya who was banned for a decade from all football activities. 

In a circular signed by the FKF CEO dated April 5th April 2017 and sent to its affiliate members, the federation says Nyamweya has lost membership rights and anybody dealing with him will be doing so in an individual capacity. 

Part of the circular read:

‘This is to inform you that based on the decision made by the FKF  National Executive Committee meeting held on March 21st 2017, Sam Nyamweya has been suspended as per Article 14(1) and Article 34(m) of the FKF Constitution for a period of 10 years. Consequently he loses his membership rights  with immediate effect for the next ten years. We remind you and your affiliates not to enter into  any sporting contact  with the aforementioned during the suspension’

The circular is copied to all FKF Branches, Sub Branches and Clubs.

Court

The former FKF president Nyamweya recently moved to court to  challenge his suspension from  football activities in Kenya for a period of 10 years.

Nyamweya said that the decision by FKF  by the federation’s new boss Nick Mwendwa to ban him on March 28 2017, the former boss was served a 10-year ban from all football activities  is unreasonable and irrational.

In the petition Nyamweya argues  that he has been suspended by the respondents from all football activities for a period of 10 years despite not being a member of FKF.

He says that he was not summoned or given any hearing by FKF and  that the decision to suspend him was in bad faith claiming that he is being targeted.

“The petitioner is being targeted having exercised his constitutional rights and filed a case against Nick Mwendwa   among others which is pending court, “ Nyamweya says in his court papers.

He further argues that the ban  has brought his character and legacy as a respected and retired football administrator locally and international into disrepute .He wants   the court should intervene.

He wants the court to issue conservatory orders  staying the decision by  the federation's National Executive Committee pending hearing and determination of the case.

He argues that he has not been held culpable for any allegations by the respondents.

NICK Mwendwa and Robert Muthoni have been named as respondents in the case and have been sued as representatives of FKF.

Last month   Nyamweya  won round  one  of a  Kenya  Premier league dispute after the High court dismissed  a preliminary objection  by Nick Mwendwa and Robert Muthomi  to have a case filed  by Nyamweya thrown out without full hearing.

Judge John Mativo ruled that the objection by Mwendwa seeking to have the petition struck out lacked merit adding that it  was not based on a  pure point of law to warrant its  dismissal. 

Nyamweya had moved to court seeking orders  to suspend club licensing rules and  blocking FKF and their officials from discussing or interfering with ownership and management of Kenya Premier League.

In the suit he had  sued the Sports Dispute Tribunal, FKF president, Nick Mwendwa, CEO Robert Muthomi and KPL.

He says the two have made unilateral decisions to the detriment of football in the country.

Nick Mwendwa and Robert Muthomi on behalf of FKF and KPL had raised an  objection towards  hearing the matter on the basis that Nyamweya's case does not disclose violation of constitutional rights.

The judge added that the agreement in dispute was entered between two legal persons and that when  dispute arose, the same was heard by the sports tribunal and a determination made.

FKF, he said, also ignored lawful orders given by Sports Dispute Tribunal on October 14, 2016 and went ahead to approve club licensing regulations ,which bordered on expansion of the league.

He now wants the courts to intervene and prevent any deadlocks, which might lead to sanctioning of Kenya.

Nyamweya was apprehensive that the country might miss out on hosting the 2018 African Nations Championship to the detriment of millions of fans if sanity is not restored.

FKF is a member association of Fifa and is in charge of organising the second tier football league (national super league) as well as other leagues below national league.

AFC Leopards youngster Marcellus Ingotsi may have been on the pitch for only 45 minutes during their barren draw against Ulinzi Stars Wednesday (5) but such was his contribution that he left the Soldiers’ defender Mohammed ‘Rio’ Hassan showering him with praise.

Ingotsi, a graduate from the Leopards U20 setup and 'the quickest player in our team' as coach Stewart Hall once said, passed a late fitness test to take part in the match but was only used for the opening half with Andrew Tololwa replacing him before the second half resumption.

Playing on the left wing, the speedy attacker was one of the brightest players during the half that Leopards bossed. Time and again, he came up against experienced topflight campaigner Hassan, one of those no nonsense defenders who any youngster would dread to face with the ball... but not Ingotsi.

Hassan’s experience saw him make some timely interceptions to deny his younger opponent a free run to the danger zone in what was one of the key battles of the opening half. It was unfortunate that Ingotsi was withdrawn after the interval but Hassan had seen enough of the breakout star.

"Eyes on the ball.. this young striker has de (sic) bright future at Ingwe," Hassan captioned a Facebook photo of him and Ingotsi in action at the Machakos Stadium.

That gesture saw him earn plaudits from his followers. One fan asked if he had been given a torrid time by the youngster to which Hassan replied: 'Kiasi (a bit)'

It is not often that you see players pour praise on their opponents - it's almost an impossible this side of the world - but when something seems special, praise becomes inevitable.

AFC Leopards went top of the Kenyan Premier League for the first time in the 2017 season after pulling a 0-0 draw against Ulinzi Stars in a rescheduled Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match played at the Machakos County Stadium on Wednesday 5th April. 

AFC Leopards head coach Stewart Hall on the other handed youngster Marcelus Ingotsi and Uganda internation Allan Katergga their first start of the season in his squad that will play Ulinzi. Ingotsi replaced Paul Kiongera who had hurt his knee in their 2-1 defeat of Nzoia United. Kateregga on the other hand has taken Marcus Abwao on the flanks.

Robinson Kamura partnered  Salim Abdallah and Marcus Abwao in a three man defence with Duncan Otieno, Bernard Mango'li and Whyvone Isuza in the midfield. 

Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso handed Boniface Onyango a start in his squad with Omar Mbongi is missing in the squad.There only chance of the game came in the .  

The draw ended their six-game losing run against Ulinzi Stars in the league but were left ruing missed chances as the duo settled for a barren draw in their midweek Kenyan Premier League match at the Machakos Stadium, Wednesday afternoon.

A resolute defensive performance from Salim ‘Shitu’ Abdalla and Robinson Kamura ensured Leopards took a point and a clean sheet while the Soldiers will feel a wee bit grateful to Fiamenyo for his missed chances.

Leopards could have taken the lead inside two minutes but their two-goal striker Gilbert Fiamenyo volleyed over with only Saruni to beat.

The visitors were given some reprieve when goalkeeper James Saruni escaped a booking after handling the ball just outside his box with the referee awarding no less than a freekick. Robinson Kamura, often deadly in such situations, stepped forward but directed his effort straight at the wall.

It was one moment in a good 10-minute spell for Leopards who had pinned the Soldiers in their own half but could not capitalize.

Evans Amuoka had Ulinzi’s best chance of the half when he beat Leopards’ offside trap but after advancing towards the danger zone, he opted to look for a teammate inside the box when having a go could have been the better option as Salim ‘Shitu’ Abdalla cleared the danger.

On the other end, Fiamenyo was presented with another chance as he robbed Geoffrey Kokoyo of the ball, rounded keeper Saruni but a moment of hesitation saw Brian Birgen made a timely interception and clear the ball for a corner which was wasted.

With the first half time running out, the Ghanaian thought he had given Ingwe the lead but he was correctly ruled offside, much to the disgust of the Leopards fans who were scarcely spread across the Machakos Stadium.

The one minute added time wasn’t just enough for any of the teams mount one more attack as they retreated to the dressing room evenly poised.

There was barely any goalmouth action in the next half hour save for a skied effort from substitute Andrew Tololwa who had replaced Marcellus Ingotsi before the restart.

Another substitute, Cliff Kasuti almost grabbed Ulinzi their opener and perhaps the winning goal when he met a deep cross from John Kago at the far post but Ian Otieno spread himself big and made the save.

 Two minutes later, Fiamenyo stung Saruni’s palm with a ferocious right from drive, the keeper making his best save of the match. There was to be no goal though despite four minutes additional minutes as the duo settled for a point which they both deserved.

 AFC Leopards Starting XI: Ian Otieno, Robinson Kamura, Salim Abdalla,Marcus Abwao, Duncan Otieno, Mangoli Bernard(C), Dennis Shikhayi , Allan Kateregga , Whyvone Isuzza, Marcelus Ingotsi , Fiamenyo Gilbert
