KPL Open Disciplinary Action against Ochomo

Muhoroni Youth forward, Wycliffe Ochomo, has landed in hot soup with the Kenyan Premier League Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC), following his unbecoming behaviour where he appeared to stick a finger on the backside of Posta Rangers defender, Joakins Atudo, in their Feb. 14 league encounter.

Ochomo, who has since denied any ill-motivation, has been advised by the IDCC to ‘send a written submission by Monday, February 22 and appear before the IDCC on Wednesday February 24 to respond to the charges.’

The IDCC has opened investigations on the incident which was caught on camera and what the committee terms as ‘unsporting conduct’ with KPL Chief Executive Officer Jack Oguda writing the specific charges as:

“That on Sunday, February 14, 2016 during match number 5 between Posta Rangers and Muhoroni Youth played at the Britam Nyayo Stadium, you (Wyclife Ochomo) were involved in an unsporting act contrary to Rule 6 on Fair Play.”

Last year, Tanzanian defender, Juma Said, was handed a two-year ban by the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) after engaging in the same act, Azam forward John Bocco being the victim.
