Kenya: Gor Back On Supersport TV As Ban Gets Lifted

Supersport will now screen the FKF semifinal match between Gor and bitter rivals AFC Leopards on Saturday and Sunday's clash between league champions Tusker and Sofapaka. Both will be at the Moi Centre in Kasarani.

A press statement signed by Football Kenya Federation chairman Sam Nyamweya and Kenya Premier League chairman James Musyoki said the ban is lifted until investigations are concluded and FKF and KPL disciplinary bodies deliberate and submit their decision next Friday.

The South African firm switched off Gor Mahia matches following crowd trouble after Saturday's KPL encounter against Thika United at Nairobi City stadium on Saturday.

Gor have been ordered, with immediate effect, to play all their matches at Kasarani until they provide FKF and KPL a detailed safety and security plan and an anti hooliganism policy for all future matches in accordance with the rules governing Kenyan football and ensure the implementation process by December 2012.

The pre event safety and security meeting will be held today at the Moi International Sports centre Kasarani followed up by a peace procession.

Nyamweya has asked the clubs to ensure their fans behave in a fair manner and refrain from violent conduct in future matches. Gor Mahia sponsors Tuzo have threatened to pull out of the sponsorship over the violence.
