Seven Tusker FC members have tested positive for coronavirus, Nation Sport understands.
They include five footballers, one of whom is currently admitted at a Nairobi hospital, plus two members of the technical bench.
These positive results were returned following tests conducted on top-flight clubs by a medical firm contracted by Football Kenya Federation (FKF) in readiness for the start of the 2020/21 league season.
The league is set to commence this weekend, subject to clearance by the government.
Nation Sport from sources within the team can reveal that the affected players include two Kenya internationals, one of whom has just returned home following a stint abroad.
The other is an established forward who has been at the club for the past two seasons.
Further reports suggest that newly promoted side Bidco have also returned positive results.
A head coach of one of the teams in the league has also tested positive.
This development further complicates the chances of resumption of the league with Tusker set to face AFC Leopards on Sunday.
