The Kenya Premier League Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC) has made its biggest statement yet in its bid to contain crowd trouble in the league this season.

IDCC has landed heavy sanctions on Premier League club Muhoroni Youth who were unable to reign over their fans who disrupted their league match against visiting Western Stima on April 25.

Muhoroni have been fined Ksh 324,000 while a one-year ban has been slapped on one of its renowned fans, George Odhiambo Onyango alias ‘Jojo'.

"Muhoroni Youth F.C. failed to control its fans and/or supporters during the KPL Match No. 67 (2015), who as a result assaulted some officials of the Western Stima F.C. and damaged and appropriated their property," IDCC said in its ruling released on Thursday.

"We order Muhoroni Youth F.C. to pay damages to Western Stima F.C. for the damaged and/or lost property belonging to its officials in the sum of Kshs124,000 within fourteen (14) days from the date of this decision. It is further Ordered that Muhoroni Youth F.C. shall pay a fine of KShs200,000 within fourteen (14) days from the date of this decision,” said the statement.

“The Committee further orders a ban of Mr. George Odhiambo Onyango AKA Jojo from all KPL matches for a period of one (1) year effective from the date of this decision. Muhoroni Youth F.C. shall co-operate with KPL, and other clubs or security teams to ensure adherence to this order. In the event of any breach thereof, any affected person or persons is at liberty to refer to this committee for review and/or further orders."

Meanwhile the disciplinary body, under the directive of Chair Prof Migai Aketch, order for a review of security and safety of the Muhoroni venue to be undertaken by the KPL Security and Safety Committee, with the report to be submitted by June 22nd. 

Muhoroni won the match 1-0 and will count themselves lucky that IDCC didn’t reverse their win or at worse, dock them points.
